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.

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
