Tasting the fine wines of the La Crema Vineyard / Winery with our national sales rep-artiste-extraordinaire Marita Esteva that with Jade Smythe of Monument Imports had a selection of their small-batch Oregon Pinot Noirs from Dundee Hills, 2013, the Eola-Amity Hills 2013, the Willamette Valley , too, 2014, and the ' new to me ' Ribbon Ridge 2013 : I liked them all very much, all so distinctively different, all special in their own ways, ...
I liked less the Chardonnay that I tastes , Eola-Amity Hills : pleasing enough, balanced, not exciting to my particular palate though. I did not like the rose  at all, found it too fruity and the least interesting of everything. 
You cannot love everything!
I loved the Dundee Hills dusty-dry, earthy, scratcht, touch briar Pint Noir of a lighter, more brown dull color, it spoke and tasted to me in volumes, and then I liked the Rabbit Ridge which I found a thicker-skinned, denser, darker , more youthful version of the Dundee Hills 2013, even though it, too was a 2013 ! Go figure!
