Due to an unexpected family matter, we were unable to attend (even virtually) the Snooth virtual tasting of La Crema Wines last night. Shame to have missed out on the conversation and especially what others tasted. Probably my favorite thing about tasting with others (virtually or not) is the breadth of flavors, aromas, and other intangibles people discover in wine. Luckily, we had pre-tasted the wines with dinner in preparation for the event - here are our notes.
2012 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast: pretty pale yellow color; floral, citrus, and caramel aromas; white peach, yellow apple, and citrus flavors; on lees in 18% new French oak or stainless 4 months; 100% secondary malolactic fermentation; cork closure; 13.5% ABV; SRP $23More information can be found on the La Crema Wines website, Facebook, and Twitter.
2012 Pinot Noir Monterey: deep garnet with light ruby edge in color; plum, earth, and cocoa aromas; cherry, rhubarb, mocha, and sassafras flavors; beautiful balance - cherry and vanilla notes on subtly tannic finish; aged 6 months in 94% French oak (26% new); cork closure; 13.9% ABV; SRP $23
