Sweet floral aromatics lead to citrus peel white flowers and crushed rocks. The Sea Smoke balances its prominent minerality with gorgeous mid-palate fleshiness and a delicate perfumed finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018. 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

Showing more power on the nose and in the mouth than the 3-D offering impressions of ripe melon nectarine honey and truffle with a sneaky note of chalk. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with serious grip and a strong echo of orchard and sweet citrus fruits. -Josh Raynolds
