Radio-Coteau Pinot Noir La Neblina Sonoma Coast 2015
Radio-Coteau translates to “broadcasting from the hillside” (origin: Northern Rhone). This is a true cult producer, led by New York native Eric Sussman, who fell in love with California’s coast. They produce incredible wines and practice conservation and sustainability in the vineyard. La Neblina (“fog”) recognizes the role that western Sonoma’s foggy coast plays in forming Pinot Noir’s identity. A pretty style, with layers of cherry, rose petal, clove, and lavender.
VM 93: Radio-Coteau's 2015 Pinot Noir La Neblina is soft, succulent and inviting. Sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, spice and lavender infuse this appealing, mid-weight Pinot Noir from Radio-Coteau. A dollop of whole clusters adds aromatic nuance, but the Neblina is a wine to drink and enjoy for its exuberant fruit expression, all done in the classic restrained Radio-Coteau style--Antonio Galloni
