The 2014 Pinot Noir La Neblina is an attractive wine, although it may be going through a slightly awkward stage, as I don't quite see the level of sweetness or early accessibility that is typical, but that could also be partly a result of the structured vintage. Dark red cherry, plum, licorice and menthol are some of the signatures, but it is the wine's tension and brilliance that I find especially compelling. I tasted the 2014 from barrel. My impression is that the 2014 will require a bit more cellaring than normal. The Neblina is a blend of five sites, with Hallberg as the core vineyard. This is a gorgeous Pinot Noir from Radio-Coteau.
