  • 2022 La Follette Sun Chase Pinot Noir
    Sonoma Coast
    An immediately dramatic site atop the western face of Sonoma Mountain, Sun Chase vineyard yields a compelling and distinctive wine, embracing both its mountain location and the cooling effects of the Petaluma Wind Gap. Two clones are married here, Dijon 114 and Dijon 777. The 114 always ripens first, lending vibrancy and amazing red fruit aromatics. The 777 is darker and more brooding, nicely complementing the 114 in both fleshing out the mid-palate and extending the finish. This wine has concentration without being heavy and the structure to improve over several more years of aging.

  • 2022 La Follette Heintz Vineyard Pinot Noir
    Russian River Valley
    From a vineyard just outside the West Sonoma County town of Occidental, and considered a Grand Cru for Chardonnay, comes this unique wine crafted from Swan selection cuttings planted back in 2000. Located in an isolated block in the coldest part of the estate, and on the locally favored Goldridge soil type, this wine exhibits bright cherry fruit alongside savory notes of baking spice and forest floor. Ample natural acidity keeps things refreshing and ensures age-worthiness. LaFollette is the sole recipient of this Swan selection block from Heintz Ranch. Farmed by 3rd generation grower Charlie Heintz and family.
    Suggested Retail Price: $65
