Radio-Coteau Las Colinas Syrah
The Las Colinas Syrah is indicative of what is possible for cool-climate Syrah as it captures the essence of the western Sonoma Coast appellation. Élevage in 500-liter French oak puncheons helps to preserve fruit and spice, and affords graceful aging in the cellar. In 2018, Mother Nature’s grace allowed for a more leisurely Syrah harvest and a modest amount of whole cluster inclusion. The result for this select barrel blend of biodynamically farmed Harrison Grade Estate and organically farmed Dusty Lane fruit is a coastal Syrah that is at once both lithe and powerful.

Vinous – “The 2018 Radio-Coteau Las Colinas Syrah is a powerful, savory wine. In this vintage, the Colinas is a real powerhouse. Savory and peppery flavors abound. I am quite honestly surprised to see how reticent the Colinas is. Readers should plan on cellaring it for at least a few years. There is a lot of wine here, and certainly a lot to look forward to.” (94 Pts)
