BREWER-CLIFTON PINOT NOIR, HAPGOOD VINEYARD, STA. RITA HILLS 2014
A complex, layered 2014 that doesn't skimp on texture, the 2014 Pinot Noir Hapgood has loads of black cherry, dried herbs, sandy soil, licorice and spice box to go with a full-bodied, supple, layered, yet still focused and lively style on the palate. Another rich, textured, yet balanced Pinot Noir from this team, it has solid tannic structure and will cruise for at least a decade in the cellar.
NVWE Notes: This wine offers classic BC intensity in its mix of layered fruit, exotic spice and vivid zest. The nose jumps out in a wave of red plum jam, boysenberry-blueberry compote, sour cherry galette, cherry pit, mace, cardamom, pencil shaving, dry rose sachet, pink peppercorn, sumac berry, caramel apple and baking-spice scents of almost uniform richness. The flavors speak as eloquently, with cherry-rhubarb pie, strawberry, plum galette, black tea, graphite, clove, cardamom and mace dominating and piquant cherry pit, nectarine pit, crushed rock and hazelnut husk notes in counterpoint. As the wine airs, the finish becomes a lingering mirror of the opening aromatic panorama. Structured and packed with youthful energy, it is destined for long life. 196 cases produced.
