Radio Coteau 'Savoy' Pinot Noir
Winemaker Eric Sussman started Radio Coteau in Sonoma Country in 2002, aiming to capture the soil, season, people and place in a bottle. The sites he has chosen host grapes naturally suited to the soil, marine fog and well-drained soils. Since 2002, Eric has strived to balance natures expression with a delicate, but disciplined human touch to these small-production, high quality wines.
