2024 Spring Release
Expressing the unique character of a cool climate Zinfandel on Goldridge soil, Radio-Coteau’s Sonoma Coast Estate vineyard resides on a sun-drenched coastal ridge top above the town of Occidental. Lemorel is a tribute to the pioneering winegrowing family, folks who not only planted some of the first coastal Zinfandel, but also built the old historic winery back in 1906, currently still in-use though retired from original intent. Harvested on a cool, early morning in mid-September, the 2020 Lemorel is once again comprised of distinctive, gnarly vines planted in 1946. Following a 21-month élevage in barrel and puncheon with a modest amount of new wood, and another year of rest in bottle, the heady, expressive 2020 Lemorel is ready for immediate enjoyment.
