picking 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. Early in the season, we isolated specific sections of the vineyard for the 2015 Laguna Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, keeping yields in check and grooming the fruit for this vineyard designate.

The 2015 Radio-Coteau Laguna Pinot Noir has a concentrated expression of Russian River Valley that begins with a deep ruby core. To begin this wine is characterized by primary aromas of bright black cherry and baked plum, on the palate and nose. Secondary aromas of baking spices and red licorice help place this wine decidedly in the Russian River Valley. A unique roasted quality adds to the intrigue of this wine as moderate tannin and balanced acidity smoothly transition to the Russian River Valley velvety finish.

“From a site in the Russian River, the 2015 Pinot Noir Laguna is endowed with striking aromatic purity and delineation. Rose petal, blood orange and exotic spices give the wine its distinctive exotic personality, while beams of tannin and bright acidity lend freshness, energy and vivacity. This is a fabulous showing from Radio-Coteau.”— Antonio Galloni
