La Crema - Sonoma Coast - Pinot Noir
Overview: When La Crema was founded in 1979 as La Crema Viñera, meaning the Best of the Vine, the name was intended as an unabashed boast: These vineyards produced the very best grapes in the region. Today, the name has been shortened to mean, simply, the best, and La Crema’s wines represent the best grapes from preeminent cool-climate regions in California and Oregon. La Crema wines—inspired by Burgundian-style Chardonnay and Pinot Noir—are made in small lots that nurture distinct flavors and balance. The end result is elegant wines that are unswerving in quality over time.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of red cherry, POMEGRANATE, and sweet tobacco are followed by flavors of assorted berries, PLUM, and subtle toasted notes. The 2018 vintage presents FINE TANNINS and balanced acidity.
