Wine Enthusiast 88 The 2009 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir offers aromas of lush cherry and red plum, with subtle hints of black tea and cola. On the palate, avors are ripe and elegant, centering on red cherry and spice with a touch of earthiness and dark chocolate. A rich, juicy mid palate and vivid acidity lead to plush tannins on the finish. ABV 14.2View all products by La Crema
Great wine is often about great land, and there is no exception here. The vineyards that create La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir are ideally suited to the grape. Pinot Noir likes a cooler climate than Cabernet Sauvignon, therefore the cooling breeze that blows through the Petaluma Gap from the Pacific, along with the morning fogs that roll over the vineyards from San Pablo Bay, create the perfect environment. Dry sunny afternoons help burn off the fog and let the grapes ripen so the wine bustles with juicy fruit flavors. The terrain of Somona County ranges from rocky mountain soil to ocean derived limestone, with each adding complexity of the final blend.
The first impression of La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a wine of outstanding aromatic intensity. Rich red cherry and raspberry notes laced with hints of cedar and an enticing forest floor character. Flavors of bright ripe cherry, raspberry and blackberries with hints of plum and orange are balanced with vanilla spice and toasty notes from the wine's nine months in oak. Tannins are low and very smooth with bright, crisp acidity, leading to a long, mouthwatering finish.
