2023 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. The 2019 growing conditions produced low yields of highly concentrated fruit from the 73-year-old Lemorel vines. Gentle handling in the cellar during fermentation and élevage further preserved fruit purity, resulting in a coastal expression worthy of its special site origin.
