The wine's vibrancy follows through nicely to the focused finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019. 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

Complex ripe aromas of citrus fruits minerals and white flowers with a hint of honey. Broad fat and rather powerful in the mouth with energetic citrus and pear flavors supported by powerful underlying minerality. The chewy mouth-coating finish is fresh and impressively persistent. -Josh Raynolds
