Food Pairings for La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
La Crema was founded in 1979 and quickly established itself as a pioneer for intensely flavored Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from cool climate. Continuing this tradition, La Crema pursues the ultimate expression of the Russian River Valley, Carneros and Anderson Valley by handcrafting wines of distinctive flavor which achieve elegance and balance. Like the Burgundy wine region of France, the vineyards of Sonoma Coast offer an unusually long, cool and even growing season. Lingering fog and wind from the nearby Pacific Ocean (or, in Los Carneros’ case, the San Pablo Bay) moderate temperatures throughout the growing season and slow the ripening process. With an extended “hang” time on the vines, the results at harvest are small berries with firm acidity and highly concentrated varietal aromas and flavors. The Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir offers expressive aromas of ripe cherry, spicy clove and licorice punctuated by fresh floral notes. Bright cherry continues in the mouth, joined by plum, orange peel and tea leaves, giving a mouth-watering juiciness to this wine. Balanced acidity and sturdy tannins round out the mouth.
