Brewer-Clifton 2004 Melville Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

This tastes riper and hotter than the winery's other Pinots I tasted, almost to the point of raisins and stewed prunes. The vintage was very difficult, with stupendous heat waves that challenged both growers and vintners. The wine does its best, but can't quite overcome the ill effects of the heat.
