Natalie's Score: 93/100

Whenever I see La Crema pinot noir on a restaurant list, I know it's going to be a great meal, no matter what we're having food-wise. This subtle red is silky smooth enough not to clash with seafood yet it's loaded with fleshy cherry flavours for meatier dishes. Perfection though is roast chicken or planked salmon. Absolutely phenomenal for this price.

Pinot Noir food pairings: chicken, duck, pork.

Reviews and Ratings

Allison & Chris Wallace rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An earthy, spicy nose with cherry and baking spices following through on the full bodied palate. This is a big Pinot, more in the style found in the Central Coast. Delicious now but will still improve with a little bit of time. Terrific value for money.
La Crema has been one of my ‘go to’ Pinot Noirs from Sonoma for years. It displays notes of tart cherry, pomegranate, cranberry and violet with refreshing acidity, balanced oak treatment and loads of varietal character for a great price (for Pinot Noir!)

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
