2013 Brewer-Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1186092 92 points Vinous

 Brewer-Clifton's 2013 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is a beautiful example of the appellation. Juicy dark cherries, plums, exotic spices and lavender meld together in an effortless, gracious Pinot endowed with depth and personality. Gently spiced notes add shades of nuance on the racy finish. This is a strong set of new releases from Brewer-Clifton... The Pinot Noirs are done with 100% whole clusters (the appellation wine sees 60-80%), with long cold soaks and maceration times lasting as long as 4-5 weeks. (AG)  (6/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Smooth-textured, with zesty wild berry, raspberry and black licorice flavors, showing spicy floral scents and a touch of lavender, gliding through on the finish. (JL)  (9/2015)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright ruby-red. High-pitched red berry and floral scents are sharpened by suggestions of white pepper and allspice. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become fleshier and sweeter with air. Fruit-driven and accessible, finishing with strong punch, repeating florality and slow-building supple tannins. (JR)  (12/2014)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2013 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is outstanding and shines for its sweet, fruit-forward character. Offering up tons of black raspberry, bing cherry, spice and flowers, drink this medium-bodied, hard-to-resist, supple and straight-up delicious beauty over the coming 4-5 years. (JD)  (8/2015)
