Steve Clifton & Sons 2017 Iris' Pinot Noir
Iris Vineyard, Sta. Rita Hills AVA
Pinot Noir has been a major focus in my career over the last 30 years. My major interest has always been what is now famous as the Sta. Rita Hills. Through Brewer-Clifton, we were making Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from this area long before it was officially named. Iris’s vineyard is a very special place farmed by Francisco Ramirez and producing classic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit on Sweeney Canyon Road in the Sta. Rita Hills. This wine continues a long legacy of production from this area.
