The Russian River Valley Pinot Noir opens with fresh aromas of boysenberry supported by deeper tones of anise, espresso bean and earth. The palate expands into black cherry and dark chocolate flavors, rounded by cola and clove. Well-structured and decidedly velvety, the supple tannins and spice linger on a long satisfying finish.


"At 12,155 cases, the delicious 2013 Pinot Noir Russian River is the largest cuvée. It exhibits classic notes from Russian River, including loamy soil/earthy notes along with black cherry jam, baking spices and fruit cake aromas as well as a hint of sassafras. This is a meaty, fleshy, reasonably well-endowed Pinot Noir to drink over the next 2-4 years." -Rated 90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2013 Pinot Noir is one of the most expressive wines in the La Crema range. Succulent black cherry, smoke, leather, licorice and menthol are all fused together in the glass, while firm beams of supporting tannin give the wine its energy and overall sense of proportion. The is a real overachiever, not to mention one of the gems in this set of terrific new releases from La Crema." -Rated 91, Vinous
