The La Follette 2014 North Coast Pinot Noir is the culmination of years of exploring vineyards in the outer reaches of California’s North Coast wine region. This bottling is a blend of fruit from Mendocino County and the Sonoma Coast’s Petaluma Gap wine growing regions, and it beautifully captures the essence of the Pinot Noir grown here.
The wine opens with an exuberant bouquet of cherry, berry and cinnamon bark, with just a touch of forest earthiness. A silky entry offers a wild strawberry note and leads to vibrant, fresh acidity, fine grain tannins and red fruit notes of cherry, hibiscus and red currant. Notes of juicy berry and brown spice emerge on the mouthwatering finish. Overall, this is a complete and palate-pleasing rendition of coastal Pinot Noir. Aged in oak. Enjoy now until 2022.
