Brewer Clifton Machado Pinot Noir 2015
|Region||California, Central Coast|
The stunning aromatic profile on this bottling compellingly combines candied fruit with the lift of crushed herbs, while blending cherry and grenadine with mint, bay leaf, a hint of green olive and a touch of crushed gravel on the nose. That lovable core of plush red fruits rides tight tannins on the palate, where bay leaf, thyme and green peppercorn flavors complete the sip.
Complex and subtle, with a firm structure to the mix of dark currant, pomegranate, raspberry and plum tart flavors, supported by medium-grained tannins. Cocoa powder notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 291 cases made.
Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Machado is scented of kirsch and pomegranate with an undercurrent of forest floor, sautéed herbs, cinnamon stick and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate packs in the intense red berry and earthy flavors with a chewy backbone supporting the dense fruit through the long, lively finish.
