La Crema Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018
The grapes were hand-picked, hand-sorted and gently destemmed. The juice was cold-soaked for three days at 48 degrees then fermented in open-top tanks and punched down 2-3 times per day during active fermentation.
Post-fermentation free run was then transferred to tanks for one night of settling before racking to new and used French oak barrels for 9 months.
On the nose, violets, star anise, marionberry and bay leaf.
On the palate, raspberry, boysenberry, coffee bean, dark spice and orange zest. An elegant wine with supple tannins and a touch of cedar that adds complexity and length.
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.
In a mixed or straight case: $73.82
