Spirit of Wine Review & Rating: ** $$ La Crema Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, CA, 2005

Find prices and retail availability for La Crema Pinot Noir.

By way of background, opening thoughts: 

Original tasting and review : This is La Crema Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast, CA, 2005, finished at 1.% alcohol.

In the glass:  Mid-light red in the glass with purple glints.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows bright, high mild aroma with hints of clean laundry. 

On the palate:  The palate hits with a medium bright fruit up front, with light acids carrying the modest finish along.  Pleasant, nicely balanced, though not compelling and not memorable. 

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
