Black Road Vineyard

Pinot Noir

Vineyard Owner: Jim Pratt

Split equally between plantings of Clone 114 and 115, this vineyard takes into consideration the winegrowing experience that Jim Pratt has built in the past 30 years in the Russian River Valley. He’s a master at perfectly matching clones to a specific site’s condition to bring out the most natural flavor. Fruit from Clone 114 is soft with a lovely texture while Clone 115 contributes aromatics and structure. These Dijon clones are a winning combination and lead to excellent cellaring potential in a finished wine. La Follette is proud to be the exclusive producer of this single vineyard offering.
