Natalie's Score: 93/100

Fleshy cherry and dark spice with a long, naughty finish on this California Pinot Noir. Medium-bodied and satin smooth like lingerie. A supple red wine with cherry-berry mouth-filling wonder and flavours. Just enough oak for hedonists. Layered yet not heavy. This pinot has been one of my favourites for years. Satin seduction in a glass. Pair with roasted turkey or chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, roasted pork loin, roasted and braised lamb, chicken stuffed with asparagus and goat cheese, venison burgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Starting a self-inflicted long weekend with a glass of this Pinot Noir from one of my favourite Cali wineries on my deck.

This is a Pinot producer I am never disappointed in. The 2014 vintage has aromas of cherry and raspberry with touch of smoke. This is what I would call an elegant wine - lush but not in your face. Still plenty of acidity and tannins that could use some polish that a few years aging will bring. Flavours of tart cherry and black tea. Medium bodied with a long finish.

I think every Thursday should be a long weekend with a glass from La Crema!! Tasted September 14, 2017
La Crema is an iconic winery and the Pinot Noir (2014) is a mouthful of strawberry, cherry and spice and a very long finish. Silky smooth and lush this Pinot Noir will go with any of your favourite roast lamb dishes. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
