The 2009 Pinot Noir is a highly expressive wine. Sweet red fruit, herbs, licorice, dried flowers and mint are some of the notes that emerge from this mid-weight Pinot. The 100% stems come through in the wine’s aromatic profile and high-toned finish. This is a terrific introduction to the house style and a fabulous effort at this level. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. No one has done more to carry the banner for the Santa Rita Hills than Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton. Both together at Brewer-Clifton and separately in their other projects, Brewer and Clifton consistently deliver delicious wines that are also deeply thought provoking with regards to the potential these vineyard sites hold. The Pinots in particular are compelling.
Vivid red. Pure, energetic aromas of strawberry and raspberry, with sexy floral and spice notes adding complexity. Juicy and precise, with good depth and a seamless texture to its spicy red fruit flavors. Closes on a nervy note, with lingering spiciness and excellent persistence. This drinks very well right now. There's a lot of this to go around--almost 40,000 bottles, in fact.
