BREWER-CLIFTON PINOT NOIR SANTA RITA HILLS 2014

At Brewer - Clifton, they believe that the geographic, geologic and climatic uniqueness of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation provide an ideal place to grow chardonnay and pinot noir of intensity, complexity and specificity. Their mission and indeed their passion is to present wines that convey the characteristics inherent to each of these sites, with uncompromising quality.

Vineyard Notes
This blend is comprised of 3D, Acin and Machado vineyards:

3D: The primary emphasis is chardonnay, but there is a smaller field of pinot noir planted to traditional dijionaise clones Swan, Pommard and 667.
MACHADO 15-acre parcel on the Machado family land is located adjacent to Clos Pepe and immediately behind the Kessler-Haak vineyard. The site is marked by a gorgeous rolling terrain with sandy clay loam soils.
ACIN 2 1/2 acres of pinot noir is planted of clone 828.

Only neutral Sirugue barrels are used for 12-18 months. They strive for whole cluster fermentation. They farm with a focus of ripening the stems alongside the fruit, allowing the cluster to be in harmony. Working with the stems allows for wines that are structured, earthy and balanced with their beautiful SRH fruit. They often use the analogy of roasting fish or meat on the bone, the bone offers complex flavors very different than taking it off of the bone to cook it. All of the single vineyard wines are produced with the intention of aging and cellaring for at least 10 years and can easily be enjoyed after 15 years.

Tasting Notes:A savory wine with a nose of pomegranate, white tea, and raspberry. Full of dried fig, white truffle, and ripe cherry flavors.
