Wine Review: La Crema has always made very nice Pinots. This bright cherry colored offering opens with a faint dark berry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, and elegant, with light raspberry like flavors with a touch of cherry and spice. The finish is dry and its light tannins fade away nicely. This is a very food friendly wine that you would enjoy with pork tenderloin. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: “Anderson Valley Pinot is hugely expressive. The 2006 vintage offers delicate notes of blueberry and aromatic tea leaves, with subtle underlying floral notes. Bright acidity and red cherries create a lush, juicy entry – clove and anise flavors round out the middle and lead to a broad sturdy finish.” Melissa Stackhouse, Winemaker
