    ($56) Saturated red. Heady red fruits and spices on the nose, with suggestions of potpourri and sandalwood in the background. Silky, seamless and very sweet, offering deep raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of cinnamon. Very suave and alluring, with excellent finishing clarity and sappy persistence.

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Mount Carmel (14.8%) exhibits plenty of black cherry and strawberry notes with hints of lead pencil shavings, Chinese black tea, and earth. Dark ruby, medium to full-bodied, with a striking minerality, this is among the tightest knit and most structured and backward of the 2008 Pinots. One senses that everything is trying to burst the seams beneath its structured veneer.

    Was much better on Day 2 ... really well-done wine. I'd hold off on next bot for another year or so

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.
