Description

Established in 1979, La Crema, a family-owned and operated winery, is dedicated to cool climate appellations in California, exemplified in this 2018 Monterey Pinot Noir matured for 8.5 months in 19% new French oak; its deep ruby hue introduces a complex and elegant wine featuring enticing aromas of dark cherry, plum, and blackberry, enhanced by subtle notes of earthy spices and vanilla, while the palate delights in a rich, velvety texture showcasing flavors of black cherry and raspberry, complemented by layers of clove and cinnamon, with well-integrated, firm tannins leading to a long, supple finish; displaying impeccable balance and structure with a medium body, it is a versatile choice for pairing with dishes such as grilled salmon, roasted duck, or mushroom risotto—a beautiful expression of Monterey County terroir and a testament to the heights California Pinot Noir can attain.
