La Follette is a small Sonoma County winery focused on crafting small-lot Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from some of the finest vineyards in the Sonoma Coast, Sonoma Mountain and Mendocino Ridge appellations. Launched in 2010, La Follette is a new winery from esteemed California winemaker Greg La Follette in partnership with owners Pete and Terri Kight. Uniquely gifted as both a winemaker and viticulturist, Greg La Follette is one of the country’s leading authorities on Pinot Noir. Frequently espousing age-old Burgundian practices not commonly used in this country, Greg has built his career crafting rich and elegant wines that speak of a distinct sense of place. Greg studied at UC Davis, gained valuable training at Beaulieu Vineyard as a research viticulturalist/enologist under wine master André Tchelistcheff, consulted at Kendall-Jackson where he provided guidance on the improvements in vine and wine quality and launched Flower’s successful Pinot Noir program as winemaker and general manager. Today, turning his focus to La Follette, Greg is able to practice his unique style of “on the edge” winemaking – taking risks he believes are necessary to make truly extraordinary wine. Read less

Offers a symphony of red fruits in the glass, joined by earthy forest floor elements and notes of rose petal, rosemary and sage. A bright entry of red cherry transitions midpalate to charcuterie and cranberry, offering a lovely acid/tannin balance. The late palate displays intriguing notes of quince and lavender, wrapped in a long, spicy finish. Overall, a multi-layered and palate-pleasing rendition of coastal Pinot Noir.

From winemaker Greg La Follette, this 2011 Pinot Noir has integrated layers of red raspberry, lavender, and cola. The natural acidity and oak components translate to a well-rounded Pinot Noir at an excellent price.
