BROWSING ONLY
Since 2008, Winemaker Greg Brewer has been working with the Machado family and the 15 acre-site in the Sta. Rita Hills to create this single-vineyard wine. As with all Brewer-Clifton Pinot Noir, this wine is crafted using whole-cluster fermentation (stems, seeds and all) and neutral oak barrels to allow the unique characteristics of the fruit from this vineyard to shine. With notes of cherry, allspice and black tea, this Pinot Noir can be enjoyed now or easily aged for another 10 to 15 years.
