La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir 2015
The grapes were picked at night or during the cool early morning hours and cold-soaked for three days at 48°F. Next, they were punched down three times a day during fermentation, with no post-fermentation maceration, and racked out of barrel once at the time of blending, just prior to bottling.
9 months in 100% French oak, 23% new.
Aromas of black plum, cherry, rhubarb and hints of earth and loam.
Flavors of red plum, raspberry and blood orange are underpinned by distinctive river stone minerality and savory umami character. Plush and richly textured with juicy, yet balanced acidity and integrated toasty barrel spice.
The 2015 growing season was highlighted by an unusually dry winter followed by a warm and dry spring. Warm weather and sparse rainfall continued throughout summer, leading to an early start to harvest and reduced yields. The smaller crop resulted in exceptional wines with great character and concentrated flavors.
