Radio-Coteau Las Colinas Sonoma Coast Syrah 2012

$48

Radio-Coteau is a newcomer to Sonoma Coast's cult winery movement. A blend of fruit from Syrah vineyards in Sonoma County, the mineral-driven Las Colinas bottling displays notes of charcuterie, stones, blueberry, white pepper and brown spices on its cool, focused nose Only 680 cases produced! Robert Parker: "The 2012 Syrah Las Colinas is a soft, consumer-friendly effort displaying silky tannins, plenty of red and black fruits, a hint of tapenade, a nice texture, and a forward style that suggests drinking over the next 3-4 years is warranted... ...An impressive portfolio of wines routinely emerges from Radio Coteau, which employs organic farming, a low SO2 regime, indigenous yeast fermentations, extended sur lie aging with very little lees stirring, and bottling with no fining or filtration. Radio Coteau’s Syrahs continue to be splendid efforts despite the doldrums the Syrah marketplace seems to be experiencing. These wines tend to use 10% to 17% whole clusters and are generally aged 20 or more months in French puncheons."

This was grouchy upon opening (slightly reduced) but after extended aeration, it sings with blue and black fruits, with accents of smoke and game. Energetic and remarkably well-built, as it easily survives 72 hours of air.
