La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir


A cool climate means grapes spend more time on the vine. That allows a deeper, more dramatic spectrum of flavors and aromas to develop. And that creates decidedly rich and layered wines.

Like the previous year, 2013 was near-perfect. Cool weather late in the season allowed for especially lush flavor and texture. Harvest was September 3 to October 18th—grapes were hand-sorted, carefully de-stemmed and cold soaked for three days at 48°F to intensify the color and flavors of the wine.

“Cherry pie, cocoa, and black tea aromas. Pomegranate, plum, and orange zest flavors. All in all, broad, concentrated, and lingering wine.” ELIZABETH GRANT-DOUGLAS, WINEMAKER
