La Crema Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir develops beautifully in the cool vineyards of the Sonoma Coast. Extending from the Mendocino/Sonoma border down along the coast and through the Russian River Valley, then south to Los Carneros, these vineyards are unified by a common feature: lingering ocean fog and brisk winds that moderate temperatures throughout the growing season and slow the ripening process. The results at harvest are small Pinot Noir berries with firm acidity and highly concentrated varietal aromas and flavors that center on juicy cherry and spice.

A perennial favorite, this Pinot Noir offers aromas of lush cherry and red plum, with subtle hints of black tea and cola. On the palate, flavors are ripe and elegant, centering on red cherry and spice with a touch of earthiness and dark chocolate. A rich, juicy mid-palate and vivid acidity lead to plush tannins on the finish. The result is a fabulous, appealing food wine – enjoy.
