La Crema Pinot Noir Carneros Hills 2011

La Crema Pinot Noir Carneros Hills 750ML 2011     
Sku: 056537

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Apr 2013)
The 2011 Pinot Noir Los Carneros is explosive in this vintage. Dark red fruit, flowers, new leather, French oak and spices all burst from the glass. A powerful yet juicy wine, the 2011 is endowed with tons of depth and persistence, not to mention terrific overall balance. Hints of licorice and melted road tar add an element of gravitas to the dark, brooding finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018.

Wine maker notes
the series: appellation series, limited release Our Appellation Series was built upon the concept of terroir—capturing a varietal’s individual expression in a particular growing region or vineyard site. As part of this ongoing exploration, our winemaking team hand crafts small bottlings of intriguing lots each vintage. Selected from exceptional Sonoma County vineyards, these special releases are available in very limited amounts. the place: carneros hills Straddling the Napa/Sonoma County line, the Carneros hills roll up from the shores of the San Pablo Bay. The unique factor here is wind—a relentless cooling force that charges up the rolling hillsides. Our estate Pinot Noir blocks—Ahmann, Huichica and Haarstad—are found in the hills of Carneros just two miles from the bay. Here on the sloping hillsides, the cooling influence of wind and fog allow the fruit ample time on the vine to develop full, concentrated flavors and velvety texture. For this small bottling, we selected just a few blocks higher up on the estate that displayed particularly intense, concentrated character.
