2005 Radio-Coteau "Savoy" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1119158 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of my favorites is the 2005 Pinot Noir Savoy, which has beautiful earthy, blueberry, and raspberry notes intermixed with spring flowers and forest floor. The wine has excellent texture, outstanding ripeness and precision, and a long, elegant finish. It could be mistaken for a premier cru Chambolle-Musigny. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark red. Intensely perfumed aromas of ripe blackberry and cherry, complemented by exotic sandalwood and fresh rose. Ripe and dense but pure, with vibrant red and dark berry flavors, refreshing minerality and a suave toasty note. This is almost lavish in fruit expression, with a sweet floral pastille note on the long, silky finish. Compelling stuff, with the balance to age. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2007)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Delicious ripe cherry, plum and wild berry fruit is supple and polished. Turns elegant and spicy and picks up a nice mineral, pebble edge. The tannins give the fruit nice traction. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An extremely ripe nose that is opulent, spicy and expressive offers up notes of black cherry, chocolate, plum and cola that merge into equally opulent, rich and almost thick flavors that are impressive in their concentration but ponderous and heavy in the mouth and the alcohol simply overwhelms the finish with excess warmth... Eric Sussman reports that the 2005 growing season was marked by a cool and wet spring that delayed bud break and resulted in lower quantities overall. Temperatures were distinctly cooler with no real heat spikes which enabled the grapes to retain better acidity and freshness levels and Sussman said that he didn't finish picking until November! All the wines were bottled unfined and unfiltered. I have been following the Radio-Côteau wines since the 2002 vintage and it appears to me that Sussman continues to refine his touch as the wines seemingly go from strength to strength.
