It is arguably the most complex of the 2009 Pinots here. Plush dark cherries plums mint and licorice are some of the nuances that flow in this powerful intense wine. Layers of sweet inner perfume add complexity on the virile finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. 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. The 2009 Pinots saw a seven day cold soak and fermentations that lasted a total of 35-40 days with 100% stems. -AG

An explosively aromatic bouquet displays red and dark berries Asian spices rose and minerals. Deeply concentrated but also energetic offering spicy raspberry mulberry and bitter cherry flavors and picking up a candied floral note with air. Finishes with noteworthy focus and mineral-driven lift with the floral and spicy qualities repeating strongly. This sexy wine is delicious right now but I'd let it rest for at least a few more years.
