In the summer of 2012, Radio-Coteau acquired a 42-acre Historic Estate Vineyard and ranch on a hill above the town of Occidental. Originally called Joseph Morelli & Sons before Prohibition, the Lemorel Winery (as it later became known) dates back to 1892, when the first vines were planted. The estate is 800 meters and has a very diverse agro-ecosystem established on the prized Goldridge soil. The old Syrah Zinfandel has been preserved and has recently replanted the existing acreage to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This winery is already one of the absolute top in California - Mendocino

Harrison Grade is grown on the estate itself, 800 feet above sea level on a mountain ridge above Occidental. The grapes are grown organically, harvested by hand, fermented in the original way and bottled in-house. During fermentation, about 45% of the grapes are kept as a whole cluster, so that there is sufficient structure and cellar potential. This Syrah is dark ruby red in the glass, with a blue rim. The concentration of the color corresponds to the solid nose that this wine has. The wine is unfiltered and is such a unique cool-climate Syrah. Super elegant and not surprising that this wine has scored 96/100 points.
