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
