Planted and organically farmed by proprietor Arturo Robledo and his son Art Jr., this benchland vineyard has multiple clonal selections and is located on Laguna Road, just east of Vine Hill. As the vines mature and root systems become more established, the fruit character depth continues, while maintaining an inherent silky fingerprint. Acknowledging this blooming evolution, the 2013 vintage of Laguna enjoyed an 11 month Úlevage in 30% new tight-grained French oak.
The 2013 Radio-Coteau Laguna Pinot Noir has nuanced intensity with a rich ruby hue. Tart raspberry, sour cherry, and fresh fig lead the way out of the glass. A scent most closely associated with pine forest floor, along with a bit of clove and allspice, accent the earthy tones observed in both the nose and palette. Finally, a subtle charcuterie note adds more intrigue to this bottling of Laguna. While drinking voluptuously in the present, we are intrigued with the lay-down potential of this particular vintage.
