Overall Experience

Overall, I thought this La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir Rosé 2017 was a good rosé. I would not say it is one of my personal favorite flavor profiles, however it did have a good complexity level to it for a rosé style wine. If you can catch this on sale like I did, it would be a good addition to that light seafood set of apps your serving a group of friends for dinner!
