This is always fantastic and we love the style. This is real Pinot Noir, with the influence of the cool climate of Monterey very noticeable. This is vibrant and savoury, just like great Pinot should be.
“La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir is one of my go-to wines and is one of the top red wine values in the marketplace. This wine delivers aromas and flavors of fragrant red fruit, dramatic blackberries, and hints of savoury spices.”
Aromas of cherry, rhubarb, and beets are followed by flavours of red plum, cranberry, and raspberry. Presents distinct minerality, juicy acidity, and integrated notes of barrel spice.
Try Italian sausage with peppers and onions, mushroom risotto, or anything with gruyere. A simple grilled chicken or fish is sublime with this wine.
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.
