2015 La Crema Russian River Pinot Noir

January 4, 2019 - Norman Bentley
#01-19-PIE

This might be my favorite Pinot Noir in the under fifty dollar range, as I have enjoyed many superb vintages over the last two decades, and the 2015 vintage is simply delightful! We enjoyed a bottle with our Christmas Feast, which featured medium rare beef tenderloin.

The scent of fresh made jam wafts up from the bottle to add to the aroma of the Christmas Dinner table. The flavors are thick and juicy with a preponderance of cherry and strawberry. There is an undercurrent of plum and raspberry which lead to mild toasty oak tannins. The finish is powerful and long, and sails off into the night begging for another sip! The alcohol content is 14.5% and Norm's score is 92.

The wine was superb with our roasted tenderloin, but I have also enjoyed this wine with grilled salmon, and once with broiled cold water lobster tails. I don't think you can find a better Pinot Noir for under fifty dollars.

score: 92

price: $37 - $45
