About This Wine

La Follette is all about the Old World concept of terroir.

That concept suggests that each individual vineyard site has a unique expression that can be demonstrated through the wines made from grapes grown in that place. The winemaker's role is to create a wine that is transparent to the site, pure in its expression and enjoyable to drink.

La Follette partners with family-owned and farmed vineyards that are committed to maximizing the potential of their unique site, working with them to execute the viticultural directives that La Follette develops with them. These directives are guided by decades of analyzing soil composition, a vine’s biology, and the finished wine’s intended characteristics.

The Hawk’s Roost Vineyard, which provided the grapes for this 2015 La Follette Pinot Noir, is located in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. Aromatic, flavorful and offering a long finish, it provides a delicious “snapshot” of a very special vineyard.

About Pinot Noir

Very sensitive to climate and handling in winery, this fickle grape of Burgundy yields low tannin and acidity, medium colors and lifespan. Classic berry, cherry and currant flavors, silky textures typically balanced with spicy or floral tones.
