La Crema Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Wine Spectator Top 100 Of 2020 Rank 64
The nose is teeming with baking spices and pie crust. On the palate dense red fruit favors give way to subtle blue fruit and blood orange notes. Fine tannins knit the wine together. This goes fantastic with foods that are both earthy and aromatic-pepper-crusted prime rib, rosemary rack of lamb, sautéed salmon or lentil soup with fresh tarragon. More adventurous? Try curried mussels and chicken masala.
Sleek and vibrant, with snappy raspberry and red plum flavors accented by sweet basil and spice and finishing with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2027. 26,434 cases made. — TF
