Review: 2017 La Crema Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Review: 2017 La Crema Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

La Crema’s more entry-level bottlings always tend toward beefiness, and this expression is no exception, kicking off with a somewhat tough and decidedly meaty character that feels like it will never let up. Give it some time in glass, and the picture changes, albeit slowly. Notes of blackberry and blueberry cobbler emerge, alongside notes of sweet tea and some baking spice notes. The finish is brambly, classic Russian River stuff, with hints of cola and a bit of clove.
