"Offers a mix of loamy earth, dusty herb and savory dried red berry that's complex and lingering, with nice tannic grip. Drink now through 2021. 50,000 cases made. -JL" (WS)

"GOOD VALUE, Here, again La Crema has come up with a very clean and carefully made wine that offers a clear look at the lively, red cherry and strawberry fruit of Pinot Noir, and, if a touch lighter and not quite as filled-up as its cellarmate from the Sonoma Coast, it is an easy-drinking, well-balanced example whose varietal credentials are never in doubt. It, too, hits the mark for fine value, especially when found at a discount as it often is. Reviewed: May 2018" (CG)

"A rusty minerality shows on the nose of this bottling alongside dried cranberry, hibiscus and an earthy streak of crushed slate. It's lightly bodied on the sip, with somewhat sweet cranberry and pomegranate-fruit flavors, lifted by clove dust. Matt Kettmann" (WE)
