La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2007
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.
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.
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.
