La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir 2014



On the nose, red plum, tea leaves and coffee bean. On the palate, red cherry, orange zest and classic Monterey minerality. A lingering finish of sweet spice. Pairings: Try Italian sausage with peppers and onions, mushroom risotto, or anything with gruyere. A simple grilled chicken or fish is sublime with this wine.

Wine EnthusiastTart red cherries and plum skins are spiced by nutmeg, pepper and turned earth on this widely available bottling that packs decent Pinot punch for the price. The mix of ripe and tart plays hard on the palate, where red cherry pie toys with cranberry skins, and a dollop of vanilla carries the midpalate.

Wine SpectatorDeftly balanced. Though smoky oak notes hold the upper hand for now, there's plenty of well-centered plum and black cherry flavors to fill out the palate. Drink now through 2023. 50,000 cases made.
