Winemaker's Notes:

A late and even cooler-than-average season, the 2010 harvest yielded wines of elegant structure and finesse. The 2010 Los Carneros release is an excellent example of the region's dark, earthy style with a smooth, silky texture that emphasizes the juicy acidity and rich, savory quality of the vintage. The nose is highlighted by lovely forest floor elements, including hints of cedar and morels, while the palate is rich with dark plum, cocoa powder, espresso and clove.

About La Crema:

Since 1979, La Crema Winery has been a pioneer in producing Burgundian varietals from the cool Sonoma coast. They handcraft their wine, one barrel at a time, at their family-owned estate located in the Russian River Valley. Balance, finesse and great fruit intensity come through in every glass of La Crema wine.

La Crema's location in the Russian River Valley is ideal for producing wines of uncompromising elegance and balance. To achieve this goal, several unique steps take place in getting fruit from the vineyards to the bottle. It begins in the vineyard, where careful canopy management and hand harvesting assure fully ripe, undamaged grapes are brought to the winery. At the winery, Winemaker Melissa Stackhouse uses artisan winemaking techniques to handcraft wines of distinctive flavor, elegance and balance.
