The 2017 La Follette Los Primeros Pinot Noir is sourced from vineyards in two non-contiguous wine regions, hence the California designation. A wild bouquet of raspberry, chicory, and tuberose plays against earthier notes of juniper berry and forest floor. With time in glass, warm sandalwood emerges. A soft entry transitions quickly to red plum and bright, fruity acidity. Supple tannins frame late-palate notes of oak spice, bark, and tamari. An aromatically layered and inviting Pinot Noir, nuanced and satisfying.
