  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 87

    Ripe plum, cherry and raspberry aromas carry over to the palate in a sleek, well-defined style. Medium-weight, with crisp acidity and fine-grained tannins.

    The 2006 Pinot Noir Rancho Santa Rosa has a very dark ruby color (among the most colored of these wines, which are not deep in color by any means). It is sweet and broodingly backward, with a black cherry, red currant, and strawberry-scented nose, dusty, loamy soil notes, rich, ripe, medium to full-bodied flavors, but moderately high tannins. Like the Lindsay's, this seems to be one of the Pinots that is less evolved and in need of another 1-2 years of bottle age.

  • Brewer-Clifton produces vineyard designated Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Santa Rita Hills appellation in Santa Barbara. Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton started the winery in the early 1990s with the aim to capture the vineyards' essence in the bottle. The Santa Rita Hills' long growing seasons and diversity of marine-based soils give the wines great purity and precision. Steve also has his own label called Palmina that focuses on Italian varieties. Greg Brewer also has his own Diatom label and is the winemaker at Melville Winery.
