Nice Pinot with some nice earthiness and mushroom, relatively weighty and oaked

In Somm: Into the Bottle, Greg La Follette described his commitment to providing value with the quip "I am perfectly happy scraping by and roasting squirrels under bridges, as long as I can make really great wine." That sort of masochistic pursuit of value deserves to be pointed out. And at $20, this is indeed a value. The bouquet intertwines ripe black cherry, richly spiced potpourri, and loam. The nose follows through in a juicy style on the palate, but with a notable measure of balance. I bought a lot of this, so maybe Greg can roast a pig tonight.

Aromatic, ethereal, flowers, red fruits, delicate but waxy, spice. Tremendous value.

Vibrant fruit, spice, low tannin, good acid. Was a little hot on first night but balanced out great the second day. Would definitely buy again
