2006 La Crema Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 2,000 cases, $34. Just released. Clones are Pommard, 115, 667 and 777. · Very heavy bottle, don’t try lifting this with one arm. A black cherry delight from start to finish. Notes of spearmint and smoke add interest to the nose and black raspberry chimes in on the finish. Plush and healthy ripe fruit with velveteen mouth feel. Impeccable balance and thoroughly satisfying. Reviewed June 9, 2008
