(From 2012 Vintage) The La Crema Nine Barrel wines are the ultimate expression of the fog-laden vineyards of Russian River Valley. Fragile, temperamental and beautifully expressive, Pinot Noir must be handled delicately from vine to bottle to capture everything this gorgeous varietal has to offer, and this release is an excellent example of the vintage for Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. With each vintage, our winemaking team carefully tastes through our Pinot Noir lots, selecting nine truly exceptional barrels that best express the character of the vineyards and the vintage year. The result is a Russian River Valley blend with incredible depth and complexity.
