Winemaker's Notes:

Our goal is to truly capture the Russian River terroir in the glass. The 2007 Pinot Noir offers aromas of dark plum and black cherry, with hints of rose petal and orange peel. Hedonistic in flavors...brooding black cherry, cocoa and spice...plush texture, with broad tannins and a lingering, juicy fruit finish.

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.
