Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from La Crema opens a red raspberry and pomegranate bouquet with a hint of dried cranberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. Those fruit flavors are a tasty blend of strawberry and red raspberry along with nicely integrated mild oak. I also detected some hints of black plum and minerality as well. The finish is dry and subtly fades away. This Pinot is very food friendly and would be a very good glass pour in a wine bar. I would pair it with smoked salmon on toasted garlic baguette slices. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Pie cherry, cocoa, and black tea aromas. Pomegranate, plum, and orange zest flavors. All in all, broad, concentrated, and lingering wine.
