Word is that these wines are being introduced into some markets on a limited allocation basis - at first only in restaurants. As evidence of that, I found the Pinot on a by the glass list for $8 a glass - a serious bargain.
2009 La Follette Chardonnay Sangiacamo Vineyard $30
High class. Full stop. Golden color, alluring, rich nose, and the fulfilling refinement that only the very best California Chardonnay can deliver. Hits all the pleasure points - visceral and intellectual. Pricey, but worth it. Bravo.
2009 La Follette Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast $30
Maybe not quite the benchmark-setting wine the 2008 was, but a straight-ahead, darn enjoyable Pinot. Faithful to its Sonoma Coast profile and loaded with fun-loving character. Smooth as a tax refund.
