La Crema Russian River Pinot Noir 2017 - 750ml
92 Points Wine Advocate
The 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley comes from 11 vineyards across the appellation. It aged 10 months in 35% new French oak. Medium ruby, it has a savory nose of smoked cranberries, crushed red and black cherries, pipe tobacco, forest floor and hints of orange peel and potpourri. Light to medium-bodied, it's silky and intense with a great interplay of ripe fruits, spices and earth notions. It has a frame of grainy tannins and juicy freshness to enliven the long finish. Well done!
The start of 2017 brought much-needed rainfall which was followed by a mild wet spring season. A wet winter and mild spring allowed for a return to normalcy for the timing of bud break while warm weather in mid-March stimulated vines to awaken. Water saturated soils promoted vigorous canopy and cover crop growth requiring additional vineyard attention. Temperatures were moderate during bloom and early grape development. In June and July, cycles of above-average temperatures accelerated maturation with cool nights helping to provide avor development and acid retention. Record heat on Labor Day weekend prompted an early harvest in the Russian River Valley. Harvest began on September 1st in the Russian River.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
