La Crema Pinot Noir Monterey 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lightly briary blackberry fruits greet the nose along with hints of flowers, blueberries and some cigar wrapper tobacco. This is a plump little wine with earthy and bacon fat-framed flavors of raspberry and plum on the palate. The tannins are fine grained and offer gentle support to the fruit, which turns earthier and a little spicy on the back end before finishing with a wash of plum skin and charcoal. Shows a little heat on the finish. 87pts

The 2009 vintage of La Crema's Monterey Pinot Noir was a hit, and the 2010 is as good if not better. Aromas of macerated plum, tri-state strawberries, cigar, clove and black tea. Juicy and ripe, with proper acidity and a pleasant mouth-feel.
