2018 Radio-Coteau 'La Neblina' Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast California USA
Displaying graceful accessibility in its youth, the 2018 La Neblina Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir entices with a delicate mélange of fruit and spice. Fresh raspberry, red cherry, and black plum beckon, along with warm notes of allspice, and dried green tea leaf. Woven amongst well-integrated tannins is a hint of sarsaparilla, balanced by ripe cranberry and a slight minerality. Extended time in glass reveals earthier elements of mushroom and sous bois, a glimpse of the ageing potential of this versatile wine.
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.
