In its quest to explore the cool-climate regions of California, La Crema currently makes nine different Pinot Noirs, from Monterey to Mendocino. The 2011 Monterey bottling is the winery's least expensive Pinot Noir and offers great complexity for the price. A medium-bodied wine, it displays dark red fruit flavors with earthy notes and soft, rounded tannins.
