2008 Radio-Coteau "La Neblina" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1055372 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium ruby. Sexy, expressive aromas of dark berries, licorice, sassafras and smoky minerals. Juicy and tightly wound, even youthfully tangy, with a pliant structure and a restrained sweetness to the flavors of black raspberry, cherry preserves, minerals, rose and licorice pastille. Becomes spicier toward the back, finishing with silky tannins and impressive purity. This wine's lively fruit makes it enjoyable now. Inner quote mark (5/2010)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark **Outstanding** Here the nose is really admirably pure and ripe with spice and a perfumed character to the mostly red and blue fruit aromas. The rich, intense, balanced and detailed middle weight flavors possess good dry extract that buffers the underlying structure and confers a sappy mouth feel to the ever-so-mildly austere finish. I quite like this as there is both elegance and sophistication and about the only nit is a discreet touch of warmth. Inner quote mark (1/2011)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Pinot Noir La Neblina exhibits copious aromas of cranberries, black cherries, loamy soil, underbrush and pomegranate. This medium-bodied, lively, crisp Cotes de Beaune-styled Pinot Noir should drink well for 3-4 years. Inner quote mark (2/2011)

K&L Notes

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 handcrafted wine blends the nuanced characteristics of a few select sites. The core of this blend is from vines planted on Goldridge soils in Sebastopol along Highway 116. Night harvested in early September, the grapes were fermented with ten percent whole cluster to enhance spice and structure.
