La Crema Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2005

Very nice Pinot Noir from California. Under $20 from Food Lion. Winn Dixie has the Chardonnay but not the Pinot. "Buttah" very creamy and smooth. Dark fruit with a lingering finish. Maybe a little heavier than most of the Pinots we've tried.

  • Will buy again
  • Will give as a gift
  • Will recommend
The reviewers say:
"Aromas of ripe cherry, cocoa, anise and rich baking spices. Plush flavors of cherry, plum and pomegranate meld with hints of delicate tea leaf. Structured, balanced acidity and elegant, firm tannins round out the mouth." - Melissa Stackhouse, La Crema Winemaker

Very nice bottle of wine. We will try to keep this in the rack.

I drank the 2005 vintage this past summer (July 2007) and here is what I had in my notes:

Great buy in the <$20 range. Nice cherry and plum aroma, cherry fruit on the palate. Hints of tobacco or leather. Easy going wine, nice acidity, mild tannins, well balanced.
