The bouquet shows a complex bouquet that offers up both savoury and sweet tones; ripe plum and forest floor aromas are highlighted by notes of violet and cocoa powder. The palate offers notes of pomegranate and blackberry take centre stage, highlighted by notes of anise and mocha. The well-integrated vibrant acidity and ne-grained tannins create an elegantly structured finish.

For more than 30 years, La Crema has explored California’s coastal appellations, a voyage of varietals that started here at our estate in the foggy vineyards of the Russian River Valley. On our journey, we have found exciting cool-climate vineyards north in the rugged hills of Mendocino, and south along the wind-swept slopes of Los Carneros. Most recently, our exploration has taken us to the wind-swept hillside vineyards of Monterey. Centered always on the dual lens of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, we look for one unifying factor at these exceptional sites: coastal wind and fog that allow the grapes ripen slowly on the vine, developing intensely complex aromas and flavors while retaining firm acid structure. Naturally, our winemaking team seeks to express the essence of the terroir in our wines, capturing the unique personality and flavour profile of the vineyards. Elizabeth Grant-Douglas infuses our winemaking regime with a highly personal touch that combines the best of traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques with a contemporary California style.
