Brewer Clifton Machado Pinot Noir 2012
|Appellation||Sta. Rita Hills|
Wine EnthusiastIncredibly delicious aromas of blackberry syrup, strawberries, cherry pie and cinnamon sticks make for a very juicy introduction to this single-vineyard bottling by Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton. The veil of ripeness carries to the palate, but it proves more serious and restrained, with graphite minerality, bergamot and sage elements. It's complex and yet easily enjoyable.
Wine SpectatorRich and ripe, this combines firm, dense red and dark berry fruit with pretty floral and spicy notes that gain depth, hold focus and offer persistence on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 675 cases made.
