La Crema Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Wine 2015

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Warm and light on its feet, this opens with baking spice and ripe cherry aromas, cinnamon and some black pepper spice to complement the fruit. In the mouth, it's creamy and silky, with elegant dark cherry fruit around the edges of a round fullness showing some cocoa and licorice.

Light and fresh-looking with violet and garnet hues. The nose had inviting aromas of ripe raspberry, tea, and dried herbs. Cherries and spice fill the palate, rounded out by earth and underbrush. The oak influence was more pronounced on the palate with notes of vanilla and cedar. The La Crema has a light body, a good acidic backbone, and delicate tannins that linger for quite a while, along with cherry and vanilla oak flavors.

Good wine. We like it but not as rich as we want. If we get a good price we buy it for every day.

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 2009 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is outstanding. Its medium ruby color is followed by aromas of loamy soil intermixed with sweet black cherries, raspberries and plums. This medium-bodied, elegant, flavorful Pinot is already endearing and should continue to drink well for 2ndash;3 years.

The Pinot Noirs include the very good 2007 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast (200,000 cases), which exhibits crisp, plum, cherry, and allspice characteristics along with good body and an attractive, fragrant style. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years.

A rich, vital, complex Pinot Noir. Completely dry, with a savory scour of acidity, it treads a fine line between ripe cherries and pomegranates and earthier notes of mushrooms and dried herbs. Lots of terroir in this fine wine, which will take a few years of bottle age.

This dramatically constructed Pinot wants time in the cellar. It s dry, full-bodied and tannic, with bigtime cherry, black raspberry, teriyaki beef and black pepper flavors, compounded with rich, smoky oak. The acidity is so acute, it will easily shepherd this wine through 5 7 years of bottle aging. Cellar Selection.

Dense color with concentrated aromas of raspberries, blackberries and toasty oak. The fruit is rich on the palate, culminating in a long and satisfying finish.

Ruby-red. High-toned aromas of redcurrant, cherry and white pepper, with a suave floral overtone. Very wild, spice-accented flavors of red berries, minerals and dried herbs. Offers attractive sweetness and pliancy but shows a slight dry edge on the back end. The gently tannic finish features good, spicy length.
