2002 Radio-Coteau "Savoy" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1093822 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium red. Vibrant aromas of raspberry, strawberry, green tea and underbrush. Dense, large-scaled and lush, with sweet, complex, sappy flavors of raspberry, chocolate and underbrush. Impressively, with aeration this wine seemed to grow thicker on the back half without losing its tang. Finishes very long, with some sweet oak tannins and notes of wild strawberry and raspberry. I would have picked this blind as a wine from the southern end of the Cote de Nuits. Inner quote mark (6/2004)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark It seems almost greedy to ask for anything more than this deep, extracted and beautifully balanced young Pinot Noir presently offers, but hidden away beneath its layers of ripe cherries and liberally laid-on sweet oak, it sports a fine spine of tannin that suggests even better may come. An uncommon mix of polish, structure and strength, it is a well-crafted statement of all that is right with grape. Inner quote mark (6/2004)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Beautiful red ruby. This is almost a blend of the prior two wines with ripe but wonderfully elegant red and black pinot fruit trimmed in very subtle oak, cinnamon and anise nuances. The medium full flavors are rich, sappy and mouth coating with buried structure and a harmony of expression that is just lovely. There is adequate but not racy buffering acidity with fine length and this is unmistakably pure pinot in character. In short, this is a really lovely effort that already has a seductive, indeed irresistible touch of velvet on the backend. Inner quote mark (6/2004)
