La Crema Pinot Noir Fog Veil 2015

Russian River, Sonoma County, California, United StatesThis is an impressive style of RRV pinot beginning with its fresh, almost electric, acidity followed by lifted aromas of sandalwood, plums and boysenberry fruit. The attack is the classic black fruit that dominates Russian river pinot with bits of brown spice threaded throughout its lush finish. The grapes come off 20-year-old, neighboring estates, Piner and Olivet, in the heart of the Russian River Valley where the fog often lingers into the late morning hours. The soils are free draining Huichica loams well-suited to a mix of pinot clones in this case 23, 667, 777, Flowers and Pommard. The Fog Veil harvest began on August 31 and the wine spent 15 months in 33 percent new French oak. Delicious stuff.Tasted: 19 March 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
