Aromas of black plum, cherry, rhubarb, and hints of earth and loam. Flavors of red plum, raspberry, and blood orange are underpinned by distinctive river stone minerality and savory umami character. Plush and richly textured with juicy yet balanced acidity and integrated toasty barrel spice.
Try Italian sausage with peppers and onions, mushroom risotto, or anything with gruyere. A simple grilled chicken or fish is sublime with this wine.
The winery's original name, La Crema Viñera, means "best of the vine," setting the standard for all the team has done since 1979. For more than 35 years, the family-owned and operated winery has focused exclusively on cool-climate appellations, from its original home in the Russian River Valley, to Monterey and, now, the Willamette Valley. La Crema is continually exploring these very special regions—passionate in the belief that they make uniquely expressive and elegant wines. Thorough vineyard site selection and boutique winemaking techniques ensure the consistently distinct, naturally balanced wines La Crema is committed to producing.
