Crema la Pinot Noir Los Carneros 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This appellation straddles the southernmost portions of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, and is synonymous with consistently high-quality Pinot Noir. The cold weather is heavily influenced by the San Pablo Bay fog. This site specific region is acclaimed for producing world class Pinot Noir grapes of great intensity and flavor, like the La Crema Los Carneros Pinot Noir from our Appellation Series.

This was part of a Sonoma County trip to Healdsburg/Russian River for some wine tasting fun! Good nose. Light and smooth with hints of dark cherry, minerality and spices. This was overall great except for the good finish with bitter tannins. For more please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/07/russian-river-healdsburg.html

This was part of a Sonoma County trip to Healdsburg/Russian River for some wine tasting fun! This had more of a stronger fruity nose. Fruit forward with hints of berries and cherries, this was a little flat and could use more acid especially with the strong tannins and good spices. Lingers for awhile.

"Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Middling in depth and middling in focus and always finding just enough fruit at its heart to gain commendation

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Middling in depth and middling in focus and always finding just enough fruit at its heart to gain commendation, this wine mixes ripe cherry notes with a hint of vineyard soils and a whisper of a green twig element in its aromas. Piquant red cherry fruit follows a slightly rounded entry, and the wine stays on the bright, just a tad tight side all the way to the end.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

The outstanding 2008 Pinot Noir Los Carneros reveals abundant damp earth, beet root vegetable, plum, black cherry and black currant characteristics that offer considerable complexity. Sweet tannins are present in this medium to full-bodied, velvety-t... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2008 Crema, La Pinot Noir Los Carneros 1500ml
