Fodor's Southern California 2014
La Crema Review
The tasteful decor of La Crema's tasting room perfectly suits the high-profile brand's well-composed Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. A basic tasting provides a good overview of the offerings, but consider requesting a Pinot Noir appellation tasting, which allows you to sample wines whose grapes derive from several coastal AVAs. The extra heat that grapes from the Russian River Valley receive makes that area's wine the perkiest of the bunch, but each has its virtues. You can almost taste the sand and seashells in the more ascetic Sonoma Coast Shell Ridge Pinot Noir, and the Anderson Valley wine is soft, sweet, and mildly flowery. For a slightly higher fee you can taste the more exclusive 9 Barrels vintages.
