93 points "The 2010 Pinot Noir La Neblina is a gorgeous wine laced with expressive dark red cherries, flowers, licorice and sweet spices. It shows gorgeous depth and radiance in its fruit. Bright floral notes and an underpinning of vibrant minerality give the wine considerable lift and brightness. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet roses frame an energetic finish layered with distinctly saline notes. This is a fabulous showing." Best 2012-2018

89 points "The spicy 2008 Pinot Noir La Neblina, which contains considerable whole clusters (stems), exhibits a more tannic structure along with loamy soil, underbrush, sweet and sour cherry, pomegranate, and plum characteristics. Its color is similar to the 2007's, with perhaps slightly more purple to the rim. The 2008 requires some aging. (89-91)."

"A cloudy, medium garnet color in the glass, this wine has a lovely nose of raspberry and pomegranate fruit aromas mixed with light notes of mulling spices and dirt. In the mouth it has nice balance, with good acid, and a beautiful core of raspberry fruit flavors that has a nice underlying mineral and earth note to it that fades as the wine heads across the palate leaving an ethereal slightly sweet herbal note in the long, very satisfying finish. It's a bit of a cliché to talk about this as a classic Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, bit that doesn't make it less true. An excellent example of the form. Like many of these small estateless wineries, Radio Coteau marks the end of a long journey for its owner. Sussman began his interest in viticulture as a student of agriculture at Cornell University.Radio Coteau is a French expression which is used much like the English phrase "word of mouth." It literally translates to "broadcasting from the hillside." Sussman worked at Baron de Rothschild and Bonny Doon. "
