Spanish for “fog,” la neblina rolls in from the Pacific Ocean to blanket and cool the coastal Pinot Noir vineyards of western Sonoma County. The 2014 La Neblina Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is comprised of a complex array of five West County coastal sites on Goldridge soil. Organically grown fruit, hand punchdowns, native fermentations, 15% whole cluster inclusion, and a 17–month élevage in just under a third new tight-grain French oak barrels enhance the natural charm of this wine. We applaud the dedicated growers who contributed to this bottling, and the 2014 La Neblina is a cellar favorite. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in January 2016.
