Spanish for “fog,” la neblina rolls in from the Pacific Ocean to blanket and cool the coastal Pinot Noir vineyards of western Sonoma County. Organically grown grapes in prized Goldridge soil were lovingly fermented into the 2012 La Neblina Pinot Noir. Inspiring an exuberant expression of this vintage with a diverse clonal lineup, 15% whole cluster inclusion, the La Neblina went unracked during the 16-month élevage in tight grain French oak barrels.

STEVEN TANZER'S INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR,
“A totally striking wine, the 2012 Pinot Noir La Neblina is laced with bright raspberry, cranberry, rose petals mint and cinnamon notes. The flavors are bright, focused and beautifully delineated throughout. Sweet floral and spice notes add lift on the finish. In this vintage, the Neblina was done with 15% whole clusters. This bright, aromatically expressive Pinot is a great choice for drinking over the next few years. There is a lot to like here. The Neblina is Radio-Coteau's largest production Pinot, should be relatively easy to find. The 2012 is a blend of several sites, including Hallberg and deselected barrels of the vineyard-designates.” — Antonio Galloni
