Joel Baxter rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Not everyone appreciates a California Pinot Noir. Some find it too candied and not as elusive and teasing as an old world Pinot Noir. I absolutely love the subtly sweet strawberry, cherry and plum flavours in this light red. Perfect with Salmon, versatile enough to charm lamb, duck and chicken.
Taylor rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Melissa Stackhouse, a fantastically talented Pinot and Chardonnay winemaker who now works at J Winery, made this RRV Pinot. I’ll be watching to see if La Crema's Pinots remain as tasty without her.

This is a light-bodied Pinot Noir from cool climate Monterey that has refreshing, food-friendly acidity with ripe plum, candied cherry, slightly earthy green tea, some oaky tannins and raspberry on the finish. Lovely, lively, elegant. Almost perfect. Around $25. Hopefully I won’t miss you Melissa.




Natalie's Review

La Crema Pinot Noir 2009, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, California, United States: So beautifully perfumed with rose petals and violets and sweet cherry fruit. This pinot seems to get better every year: it’s a hedonist’s dream. Drink: 2009-2014. 906404 14.50% XD 750 mL  $44.95 Score: 93/100. June 11, 2011  Full Review
