Natalie's Score: 93/100

This is the half-bottle (375 ml) format of this delicious Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir with dark cherries, earthy florals and vanilla flavours finishing spicy and toasty on the palate. Medium-bodied and satin smooth like lingerie. A supple red wine with cherry-berry mouth-filling wonder and flavours.

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

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A sensuous Pinot Noir from California's Sonoma Coast. Lots of sexy vanilla, mocha and sous bois on the nose, with dark cherry, subtle oak, dark chocolate and kid leather on the velvety palate. The lingering finish leaves a very happy memory on your taste receptors. All the elements are in balance and there's an overall mouthwatering quality. A perfect date night wine.

Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Showing a dense ruby colour in my glass, this Sonoma Coast pinot noir presented shy scents of earthy raspberry and sweet cedar that announced ripe dark berries, rich cassis and dried herbal flavours and supple tannins on a medium bodied mouth coating palate. Pair with linguine topped with seared beef and pesto. Enjoy.

This is the perfect appie or aperitif size (375 ml) of this smooth and lush Pinot Noir from Sonoma County, California. La Crema 2018 is silky smooth and beautifully balanced with ripe dark cherry, violets, toasty oak spice and vanilla flavours on the palate. So good now. - Community Wine Reviews
