    Bright red. Intensely perfumed bouquet offers red fruit and floral scents, along with notes of star anise, cinnamon and smoky minerals. Bright and energetic in the mouth, with excellent clarity and power to its strawberry and raspberry preserve flavors. Tangy acidity adds lift and bite to the very long, sweet, spice-accented finish. I really like this wine's graceful, balanced character.

    The 2009 Pinot Noir Melville reveals a powerful fleshy personality close in style to the Cargasacchi. It shows marvelous density and a brooding inner darkness that is hard to fully capture with words. The wine turns a bit more radiant on the expressive finish. This parcel at Melville is planted with the 114 and 115 clones.

  • 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.
