"This inaugural vintage of Monterey Pinot Noir offers seductive aromas of wild strawberry and fresh tea leaves...subtle notes of earthiness and minerality complement the fruit-driven intensity in the nose. The palate provides layered flavors of strawberry jam and black licorice, with hints of coffee bean and bramble notes that lead to a long and fleshy finish."
- Melissa Stackhouse, La Crema Winemaker
"A balanced style, with a mix of ripe berry, plum and light creamy oak. The tannins are laced with crushed rock and cedar details. Drink now through 2020." -Wine Spectator
"Bright red. Spicy red berries and rose on the nose, with a hint of smokiness in the background. Offers tangy strawberry and redcurrant flavors and a hint of cola, with a white pepper nuance adding bite. Finishes lively and focused, leaving behind sweet red fruit liqueur and orange peel notes behind. I like the blend of succulence and tanginess here." -Rated 90, Vinous
