Brewer Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
Pomegranate, white tea and raspberry aromas. Dried fig, white truffle and ripe cherry flavors.
A chiseled red, with notes of underbrush to the dried raspberry and red currant flavors that feature accents of persimmon and pomegranate. Cardamom details show on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 4,676 cases made.
The 2016 Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills) is pretty, if a touch ethereal and fleeting in overall feel. Sweet red cherry, mint and rose petal grace a lifted, beautifully perfumed Pinot that will drink well upon release. The 2016 is attractive, but not as plump or giving as it usually is.
