Winemaker Notes

The 2014 Savoy Pinot Noir highlights what makes Anderson Valley Pinot and furthermore the Savoy vineyard so unique. The wine delicately balances fruit and earth components harmoniously. Red and black fruits of fresh, ripe black cherry, black plum, wild strawberry, and fresh blackberry roll out of the glass and onto the palate. An exotic dimension is added with the tone of Chinese five spice - namely anise and nutmeg - as well as other baking spices lent by the oak, while a lingering earthy aroma provides a tip of the cap to something decidedly more old world. The 2014 Savoy Pinot Noir has broad shoulders exhibiting moderate to full body with a roundness of texture. Well-integrated, dusty tannin with good acidity delivers a pinot that will continue to develop on the palate long after the last sip.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Pulled between heady, almost grapey purple fruit and raw mineral force, this needs time in a decanter or some more time in bottle to show its more delicate side. As it takes on air, those stony tannins act as a cooling force on the fruit, bringing a black-plum freshness, redwood-bark savor and invigorating tension. For best results, age it for five or six years

Eric Sussman first heard the expression radio coteau from a friend while living and working in Burgundy. More than a preference for how you discover these wines, the name reflects a commitment to capturing reflections of soil, seasons, people and place. In 2002, Eric established Radio-Coteau, focusing on the north coast vineyards of western Sonoma County and Anderson Valley. With their benchland locations, well-drained soils, exposure by capricious marine air and fog, these sites host grapes naturally suited to their surrounding elements. This natural selection afforded Eric an opportunity to refine his Old World experiences while working with New World grapes. For more than a decade, he has strived to balance nature’s expression with a delicate, but disciplined human touch in these handcrafted wines.

Anderson Valley, located in Mendocino County just above Sonoma County, is one of California’s coolest AVAs, allowing it a long growing season. Only 15 miles long, the region makes a slice eastward through the mountains, from the frigid Pacific Ocean. Dramatic diurnal temperature variations here preserve grape acidity and thus freshness in the finished wines. These are prime conditions for growing Pinot Noir, and the valley produces many fine versions. Characteristics of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir typically include crisp acidity, cranberry and strawberry notes as well as earthy notes of forest floor and mushroom.

Still Pinot Noir, however, is only part of the story. Pinot Noir, along with Chardonnay, are also grown for Anderson Valley’s exceptional sparkling wines. Produced via the traditional method, these offer a classic toasty note from lees aging, bright, complex fruit notes and a clean, refreshing character.
