Brewer Clifton Pinot Noir Melville Vineyard 2006, 750mL (WA93, ST93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Brewer Clifton Pinot Noir Melville Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2006
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara

WA93, ST93
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The most impressive Pinot Noir for immediate drinking (but certainly capable of lasting a decade as well) is the 2006 Pinot Noir Melville. Sweet floral notes intermixed with black raspberry, black cherry, damp earth, and roasted herbs are followed by a wine with terrific purity, a layered, full-bodied mouthfeel, and sweet tannin (the ripest tannins of any of these Pinots). This wine should drink very well young as well as much older.`All of the 2006 Pinots from Brewer-Clifton tend to emphasize the more spicy clove, allspice, underbrush, and root vegetable characteristics of Pinot Noir more than pure raspberry, black cherry, or black currant fruit. Not that they don`t have fruit, but it seems this vintage has been given a very overt spiciness, so readers who don`t like that might want to steer clear of the following Pinots. Some of the longest-lived Chardonnays being made in California these days come from the dynamic duo of Steve Clifton and Greg Brewer. The wines only see about 20-25% new oak and are bottled without fining or filtration. While their alcohols are relatively high, the acid levels are as well, and I have never had a Chardonnay from them that hasn`t been still very vibrant at 6-7 years of age, and they never taste hot.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--
