Brewer Clifton Pinot Noir Rio Vista Vineyard 2006, 750mL (WA90) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Brewer Clifton Pinot Noir Rio Vista Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2006
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Rita Hills, Santa Barbara
Condition: wrl

WA90
Rated 90 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Sweet red currants, cinnamon sticks, plum, Christmas cake, and allspice jump from the medium ruby/garnet colored 2006 Pinot Noir Rio Vista. This wine has tart acidity, plenty of body, and again, seems to offer intriguing spice box aromatics and medium to full-bodied flavors. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.`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--
