Brewer Clifton Central Coast/ Toby Oshiro

Trying the 2011 offerings from  Brewer Clifton

Santa Barbara Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills gunpowder/flint on the nose, lots of weight on the palate from the fruit  not a fruit bomb

Gnesa Chardonnay again with greenish yellow..with the flinty nose

Machado Pinot Noir 2011 light rhubarb earthy nose. tannins pronounced. upfront fruit.

Cargasacchi Pinot Noir 2011  dusty nose, dark fruit with a lighter finish

Ampelos Pinot Noir 2011  fruity nose, most user friendly

3-D Pinot Noir 2011 beautiful perfumy nose, dusty earthy finish

in general the chards came off fruity but not the fruit bomb where as the pinot noir were more on the burgundian style of earth and terroir
