Terrific balance on this Californian Pinot Noir from very evidently a cool climate. Balanced, racy and exciting. No cherry fruit bomb here, thank-you, though it's generously flavoured. Pair with grilled or roasted chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, lamb in a red wine sauce, roasted pork loin, tourtière.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Is there a La Crema PN I don't like? If so, I haven't met it yet. The bouquet is stellar and couldn't be beat - and then I tasted it. Floral, cherry fruit and glycerine smooth mouthfeel. There might be a touch more residual sugar than some might like, but for me this wine was sheer pleasure.
The Pinot Noir grapes for this lovely Californian Pinot Noir grow in a single vineyard in the cool climate of the Monterey region, with the vines planted on the wind-swept slopes of the Arroyo Seco district. The oak is barely perceptible as it's so perfectly integrated. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
