By the glass at the BA lounge NYC . Fresh bottle just off the trolley. Quite a dark rich and sweet nose, unmistakably new world. Rich on the palate , light lactic but dominated but sweet ore of fruit . Not pursue of wine and wewouldstruggle to have more than one glass. One needs to like the style to enjoy his wine. An 87 from us but not a bad wine.
Pretty deep garnet color. Fast legs and a bit on the thin side. The nose is strawberry. It was a bit tight when I first opened. Taste is berry,but no depth. No finish. Maybe better as a summer sipping wine.
Decent entry level Pinot, but no bargain at nearly $20. It needed better than half an hour breathing to open up, but it made it a better. Believe there are better choices in up to this price range, but this is not a bad choice. La Crema entry level wines tend to be very light sippers, and this was no exception. Color was darker than expected, but did not translate into a Pinot with more heft. Really a nice red sipping wine. This is better than the Monterey entry level.
