January 2021

“I was deeply impressed with this range from Eric Sussman and Davida Ebner. Tasting a bit later in the year gave me an opportunity to sample two vintages in bottle, which is not the case in most years, when I visit earlier. The bottled 2018s capture all the promise I saw last year. It is simply a fabulous vintage for Radio-Coteau. In 2019 I think the Chardonnays are stronger than the Pinots, which is consistent with my feeling about the vintage in Sonoma more broadly. I find the 2019s Pinots a bit light, despite the smaller crop that year vis-à-vis 2019. The 2019s were also vinified with more whole clusters and with lighter extractions overall, so separating the vintage effect from a natural evolution in winemaking is not easy.”
