Radio-Coteau 2018 La Neblina Pino Noir Bottle

Vineyard Profile

Spanish for “fog,” la neblina rolls in from the Pacific Ocean to blanket and cool the coastal Pinot Noir vineyards of western Sonoma County. This is our flagship Pinot Noir, always a cellar favorite, and is comprised of a complex array of five organically grown West County coastal sites on Goldridge soil. The exuberant 2018 La Neblina was assembled from select single-vineyard barrels to best capture and express the context of the vintage and the rolling hills west of Sebastopol.

Tasting Notes

Fruit-driven with delicate earth undertones, the 2018 La Neblina is undeniably Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The fragrant bouquet is driven by red cherry, crushed raspberry, and Santa Rosa plum, with a touch of rhubarb preserves. This pronounced fruit elegantly mingles with an earthy hint of forest floor, along with a secondary floral note of rosewater. A nuanced tinge of smooth vanilla coupled with polished yet expressive tannins highlight the approachability of this classic Pinot.

“The 2018 Pinot Noir La Neblina is gracious, perfumed and beautifully lifted. Crushed red berries, mint, spice and rose petal all run through the 2018 Neblina. This is an especially perfumed, taut, mid-weight style, and a terrific introduction to these wines.”
