100% pinot noir entirely from Brewer-Clifton’s estate vineyards in the sought-after Sta. Rita Hills AVA of California's Santa Barbara County. It's a classic example of pinot master Greg Brewer's trademark opulent style. ABV is 14.5%.
This is full flavored pinot noir with power, texture, and length. The winemaker has described the aromas of wines from these estate Sta. Rita Hills sites as "pomegranate, white tea, and raspberry", the flavors as "dried fig, white truffle, and ripe cherry", and the texture as "Rooibos Tea and savory". In short, it's full of rich, opulent fruit and loaded with floral, herbal, and savory complexity.
This 2016 pinot noir is full, rich and textured and ready to drink today. It can also improve for several years and age until 2026-2029.
