Brewer Clifton 2009 Chardonnay, Gnesa Vineyard, STA. Rita Hills, Santa Barbara County, CA
Vinous.com rating: 93..."Vivid yellow. Musky aromas of casaba melon, lime pith and ginger, with slow-building smokiness. Sappy, dense and stony; at once opulent and tightly focused, with lovely mineral lift contributing energy to its deep melon and orchard fruit flavors. The minerality drives a long, sappy, powerful finish."
