BREWER-CLIFTON “Machado” Pinot Noir 2013
(Sta. Rita Hills, CA) $90
Thanksgiving is next week, and among the things I am thankful for is pinot noir. The lessons of pinot are many: intensity without volume; darkness within lightness; the beauty of a touch of corruption. Brewer-Clifton has a fine hand at all of these. Their 2013 “Machado” bottling (named after the family who owns the vineyard) is a pinot with a deep slow voice. A pinot that will envelop your palate…and your mind.
