BREWER-CLIFTON 2012 PINOT NOIR "MACHADO" SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL

Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton are two of the best winemakers ever to come out of Santa Barbara County. Put these two winemakers in the same facility, and let them run wild with their love of Burgundy, and you've got some of the hottest wines in California! Brewer Clifton began working with the Machado family in 2008. Brewer Clifton's 15-acre parcel is located adjacent to Clos Pepe, and the site is marked by a gorgeous rolling terrain with sandy clay loam soils. The vineyard is tightly-spaced, with increases color and flavor within the grapes, and the vineyard is planted to "heritage clones" such as Pommard, Merry Edwards, and Mount Eden.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "Even better, the 2012 Pinot Noir Machado has sappy, grippy texture to go with notions of rose petal, earth, underbrush and both blackberry and raspberry-styled fruit. Medium to full-bodied, rich, textured and beautifully balanced, I love the overall energetic vibe here, and it should evolve nicely for upward of a decade."
