Grape(s): Pinot Noir

Localization: Russian River Valley, Sonoma, California, USA

Tasting Notes: This is a robustly structured, energetic wine, robust in oak and spicy components. Leather and game give it an edginess of rough-hewn intensity, as white pepper contrasts well against flavors of strawberry and orange.

The Domain: La Follette fully embraces the concept of terroir - that each vineyard site has a unique expression that is showcased through the wines. Grapes from each location gain the full benefit of the microclimate, clonal selection, constant eye of the vineyard manager knowing when it is best to pick each row, and so on.

The winemaker’s role is to handcraft a wine true to the vineyard, pure in its expression, and a delight to drink. Our understanding deepens with each vintage, and the wines become more reflective of that place.

La Follette partners with family-owned vineyards to produce the most distinctive, site-driven Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. We work closely together to ensure the farming is done to our viticultural directives based on decades of experience and celebrate the distinct nature of their location
