2010 La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir, CA, $23 (S) – Rating 90

It is hard to find an excellent value Pinot Noir… but here’s a good one. A pleasant nose of blueberry, plum dark spice with interesting notes of bramble and tobacco. Medium bodied with rich flavors of dark cherry jam, blackberry and ripe raspberry with plenty of spicy undertones, hints of leather and minerality. Soft tannins with a touch of acidity round out the wine. Buy This Wine

2010 La Crema Chardonnay, Monterey, CA, $18 (S) – Rating 88

A thoroughly enjoyable Chardonnay with aromas of apple, pear and creaminess. A soft and round mouth-feel with flavors of apple, tropical fruits and baking spice with notes of butterscotch cream and minerality. Just a kiss of sweetness on the finish. Buy This Wine
