The 2017 La Follette Los Primeros Pinot Noir is an approachable wine with an appealing dark garnet color that immediately implies depth. The nose is upfront – fresh and bright. Flavors and aromas include stewed fruit, cherry cola, allspice, nutmeg, dried orange rind, and enoki mushrooms. The palate evolves to mild savory herbal notes with a faint kiss of toasty oak and mild earthiness. Perfect with Portobello mushrooms, olive bread, wild salmon, seared duck breast, or goat cheese. The wine will continue to develop in the next two or three years.
