Crisp and clean aromas of strawberry, watermelon, chalk and citrus pith make for a very compelling nose on this bottling. There’s a great snap to the palate, where pure but delicate strawberry flavors leveled by an ashy streak.

COMMENTARY: The 2019 La Crema® Pinot Noir Rosé does an excellent job framing how a dry pink wine can be successful. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows appealing aromas and flavors of candied apple and red fruits. Enjoy its richness with a chicken salad with red leaf lettuce, pickled scallions, and dashes of chili and sesame oils. (Tasted: April 11, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
Aromas of Mandarin, pink grapefruit, and guava. Flavors of watermelon, strawberry, and blood orange are complemented by undertones of minerality. Delicate, crisp, and vibrant.
Pair with wild salmon, Dungeness crab, and grilled rock shrimp.

Since 1979, La Crema Winery has been a pioneer in producing Burgundian varietals from the cool Sonoma coast. They handcraft their wine, one barrel at a time, at their family-owned estate located in the Russian River Valley. Balance, finesse and great fruit intensity come through in every glass of La Crema wine.
La Crema's location in the Russian River Valley is ideal for producing wines of uncompromising elegance and balance. To achieve this goal, several unique steps take place in getting fruit from the vineyards to the bottle. It begins in the vineyard, where careful canopy management and hand harvesting assure fully ripe, undamaged grapes are brought to the winery. At the winery, Winemaker Melissa Stackhouse uses artisan winemaking techniques to handcraft wines of distinctive flavor, elegance and balance.
