Lookout Ridge

Lookout Ridge All the wines for Lookout Ridge are handcrafted under the guiding hands of Greg La Follette, Marco de Giulio, and Gordon Holmes. Because of our "multiple winemaker" strategy, we are able to use a variety of master winemakers to make the wines that are their specialty and passion. Greg La Follette, a master at blending, produces our Pinot and Chardonnay. Marco DiGiulio makes our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, which will be released some time in 2008.

  Cabernet Sauvignon Mendocino Aldine Vineyard
The 2001 Aldine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby-purple color and a concentration of spicy currant, herbal, dusty and chocolate aromas, along with a nice thread of spicy, toasty oak. On the palate, this is a big, full Cabernet with lots of elegance. Concentrated flavors of currants, berries, chocolate, spice and dusty pepper blend well with the toasty oak, great structure and balance all the way through the long, full finish. Hand selected from the Aldine Vineyard, the fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in the Talmadge Bench area in Mendocino County.
