Just 9 barrels: 225 cases | 2700 limited-edition bottles
Each vintage year, just nine barrels of wine are selected to showcase the true essence of Russian River Valley Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. When tasting through potential barrels, our winemakers look for concentration, complexity, balance, depth of flavor, textural expression and vintage character.
These limited-production wines offer an in-depth exploration of the alluring complexity and range of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in three exceptional cool-climate regions: Russian River Valley, Los Carneros and Anderson Valley.
Each vintage we embrace the broad diversity of the Sonoma Coast winegrowing region. The heart of the La Crema portfolio, our Sonoma Coast wines are a salute to the tremendous range of soils and terrain found in the region. Crafted one barrel at a time, these wines offer exceptional balance and fruit intensity.
Grapes for these wines are sourced from the benchland vineyards of Monterey on the Central Coast of California, where persistent coastal winds and fog create one of the longest, coolest growing seasons in California. Vivid, fruit-forward Chardonnay and earthy, beautifully textured Pinot Noir.
These small-lot wines showcase the La Crema winemaking style across additional varietals that capture our winemaker’s attention. Past bottlings have included Syrah, Viognier, Pinot Noir Rosé, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. Available only through our tasting room, online store or wine club.
