La Crema Pinot Noir 2012
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.Add winemaker's notes

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.
Excellent 'everyday' Pinot Noir; creamy with Blackberry. Not very complex, but very enjoyable - especially for the price.
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

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.
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.
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
'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
