La Crema Pinot Noir Los Carneros 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Los Carneros Pinot is a subtly complex masterpiece. This vintage gave us brooding, earthy aromas of cherry and forest floor, with touches of spice. Flavors are complex, full with cherry, coffee and molasses surrounded by a soft, velvety texture that ends in a fleshy, long finish. A gorgeous wine." - Melissa Stackhouse, La Crema Winemaker # Appellation: Los Carneros # Composition: 100% Pinot Noir # Clonal Selection: Pommard, 115, 667, 777 # Type of Oak: 100% French, 32% new barrels, medium, medium plus and heavy toast levels # Time in Barrel: 9 months # Alcohol: 14.5% # T.A.: 0.55g/100ml # pH: 3.70 # R.S.: 0.08%
