In the glass, our 2007 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir offers expressive aromas of ripe cherry, spicy clove and licorice punctuated by fresh floral notes. Bright cherry continues in the mouth, joined by plum, orange peel and tea leaves, giving a mouth-watering juiciness to this wine. Balanced acidity and sturdy tannins round out
"There's a fineness to the raspberry and fraises des bois flavor in this wine, with the crisp impression of fruit just coming into ripeness. The aroma is floral and tight, the finish showing more oak than fruit at the moment, needing a year in bottle to come into balance."
Wine & Spirits
"A good Pinot that shows a fine coastal influence. Dry and silky, it displays flavors of ripe cherries, Dr. Pepper cola, red licorice and sandalwood, with a cinnamon and pepper flourish. Drink now. "
"A wisp of dried flowers adds an attractive nuance to this wine's slightly rounded red cherry fruit aromas and hints of chocolate and hard candies extend its reach. Medium-full in body, nicely balanced if a touch angular at the back as the acid makes itself known, this one has a somewhat lighter touch and would be a useful mealtime mate to meaty fishes like salmon or tuna and to veal roasts and chops."

I was a fan of La crema's other vintages. This particular year or at least the bottle that I tried was disappointing. Friend suggests storing it for a while
