2017 Brewer-Clifton Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $40)

SKU #1427617 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark There's a purity of fruit and herb to Greg Brewer's style that shines through even on this appellation blend. Aromas of candied raspberry and strawberry pair with damp sage, pine oil and green peppercorn on the nose. The pristine palate's crisp pomegranate and fresh raspberry flavors are instantly cut by eucalyptus and green tobacco leaf. *Editor's Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Outer quote mark There are roughly 3,000 to 4,000 cases of the 2017 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills, which offers a beautiful bouquet of baked cherry tart, exotic orange rind, Asian spices, salty minerality, and forest floor. Elegant, medium-bodied, and silky on the palate, it has fine tannins and a great finish. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark One of the highlights in this range, the 2017 Pinot Noir (Sta.Rita Hills) is fresh, perfumed and wonderfully inviting. Rose petal, blood orange, kirsch and mint give the 2017 a decidedly exotic feel that is hugely appealing. In 2017, the Sta. Rita Hills Pinot is wonderfully lifted and nuanced, with terrific balance and class that will make it impossible to resist, even upon release. Machado and Hapgood are the core sources for this appellation Pinot. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Zesty and well-sculpted, with forest floor notes to the dried fruit and spice flavors. Dried orange peel and clove accents show on the supple finish, revealing hints of tar and paprika. (KM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills has a high-toned nose of cranberry, red cherry, licorice, woodsmoke, perfumed earth, black cherries and dried flowers with amaro hints. Light to medium-bodied with perfumed fruits, soft, grainy tannins and seamless acidity, it finishes on an earthy note. (EB) Inner quote mark (9/2019)
