La Follette Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012
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.
