Fresh cherry and raspberry aromas play against cedar box and cocoa on the nose. A silky entry leads to a burst of fruity acidity on the palate. This wine has all the dynamism of a complex Pinot Noir. High toned cranberry and hibiscus transition gracefully to forest floor and roasted chestnuts with fine tannins that provide structure to the elegant finish.

Wine AdvocateOne of the lighter-colored La Follette Pinots is the 2012 Pinot Noir Sangiacomo Vineyard. This medium ruby-colored effort reveals pink at the edge along with soft, silky redcurrants and cherries intertwined with a hint of cola. With more flavor depth and richness than its frail color suggests, this medium to full-bodied, velvety, seductive 2012 can be drunk over the next 3-4 years.

Wine EnthusiastEarth and mushroom dominate this lighter-style wine, offering aromas and flavors of forest floor and fresh soil, and even a taste of black tea shyly dancing in the background. Well-balanced and complex, it has a silky texture and long, smooth finish.

Wine SpectatorAromas of graphite and charcoal fold in with vivid blueberry and wild berry notes. Supple and lingering. Drink now through 2020. 921 cases made.
