Food Pairings for La Crema Pinot Noir
Interesting Pinot. Generally, I don't like Carneros Pinots but this has a nice earthy aroma that gives way to red cherry. Good acidity (seems the typical for the 06), some earth and layers of red fruit. Yummy.
Great rich color - light red. Good ripe fruit in the nose - cherry, plum. Good structure, decent tannins. Cherry is somewhat sour in the mouth, with a bit of bitterness (winemaker says tea, I would say tobacco). I would call this a classic Sonoma Pinot Noir. Has a long finish - sticks with you for a while.

We've had this wine as a staple in our case for a few years, now. It is very fruity with a bit of a bite towards the finish. We've found it for as little as $18 in town. Pairs nicely with herb chicken and lighter beef dishes.
A good wine. Delicate but acidic. Not very complex or sweet. Some tannins.
Good stuff. Plum and cherries. Pretty complex for a thin and delicate wine. Small tannin pucker at finish. Probably best just to sip, not bad with a ham and cheese sub.
This was part of a Sonoma County trip to Healdsburg/Russian River for some wine tasting fun! This had a good nose with the light cabbage smell of Pinot Noirs that some people describe as smell of feet. With hints of vanilla and berries, this had more spices than a typical Pinot. Well made standard Pinot with good tannins. For more please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/07/russian-river-healdsburg.html
External Reviews for La Crema Pinot Noir
Wine Tasting NotesAnderson Valley Pinot is hugely expressive. The vintage offers delicate notes of blueberry and aromatic tea leaves, subtle hints of cocoa and rose petals. Bright acidity and red cherries create a lush juicy entry, leading to a broad, sturdy finish.
Wine Tasting NotesExotic aromas of black cherry, blackberry with hints of cola, black licorice and subtle dried herbs.The flavors are focused on lush dark fruit which provides an enticing plush texture. Broad tannins mixed with a lingering fruit core round out the finish.
Opening with aromas of ripe, round cherry, floral notes, spicy clove and licorice, this wine has substantial cherry flavors on the palate that meld with rich plum, orange peel and tea over a mouth-watering jamminess. With balanced acidity and firm tannins, this wine has a long, and lingering finish.
'The 2006 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir opens with engaging aromas of ripe, round cherry, floral notes, spicy clove and licorice. Cherry continues in the mouth, melding with rich plum, orange peel and tea leaves over a mouth-watering jamminess. Balanced acidity and firm tannins round out a long, lingering finish.' - Melissa Stackhouse, La Crema Winemaker
Vivid, bright and balanced. A lovely expression of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir: aromas of black cherry and vanilla bean are joined by hints of plum, black licorice and sassafras. The palate tends toward hedonistic, with vivid blackberry, cocoa and spi
