Amazing freshness balancing the emerging tertiary characteristics. True Mt Carmel acidity shining through. — 23 days ago

Brewer-Clifton

Machado Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2018

A classic Pinot with bright red fruit supported by earthiness in the background. It was more than a warming note to our Santa Maria tri trip. — 4 months ago

Melville

Clone 459 Estate Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2006

This was part of a series that Greg Brewer bottled at Melville back in the early 2000s. At that time Melville had 14 different clones under vine, I believe. The Estate was a variable blend of some fraction of these, but being a student of pinot Greg thought it would be cool to bottle a bunch of the clones as single-clone offering to people who might geek out about trying to identify different clonal components in the various main offerings, trying some blending at home, etc. (basically, me as the target audience). I was stunned at how well this wine is still drinking after 14+ years. Beautiful, deep ruby-red color, the wine still had an impressive amount of fruit, great balance, and that tell-tale spiciness that is characteristic of wines from their Santa Rita Hills vineyards. Really terrific! — 3 years ago

Such a young wine. Drinks really well now but I love older Chardonnay so this would be fun to try in a decade or so. — 2 months ago

Hapgood Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2021

This one is knit tight. Day 1 herbaceous, cranberry, hasn’t left the starting line. Needs a full day to begin opening. — 7 months ago

Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018

Fantastic pinot from Greg Brewer at Brewer-Clifton. Usually I find his pinots need a few more years in bottle to really sing, and while this one is going to get better with more time, it’s terrific right now. Drinks like a CA version of a Premier Cru burgundy. Terrific. — 3 years ago
