  • 2015 Brewer-Clifton Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills – USA, California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills (5/3/2019)
    Day 1: Lemon, spice, mild oak, vanilla and wafer. Good acidity and complex wine. Medium plus finish. 92 points
    Day 2: Solid with lemon, spice, vanilla, wafer and citrus. Not a powerhouse Chardonnay and certainly not a White Burg but very enjoyable wine. 91 points (92 points)
  • 2015 Brewer-Clifton Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills – USA, California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills (1/20/2019)
    Day 1: Saline, lemon rind, grapefruit and spices. Very simple overall and really disappointed. Palate/finish picks up a bitter quality that is not too appealing. Glad I only bought one bottle. 85 points

    Day 2: Why I love the 3 Day Wine Review approach. Paned off as a dude on day 1 this is significantly better on day 2. Vibrant nose of lemon, shell, spice and tangerine. Palate picks up some nice oak/vanilla flavoring and is quite complex. Good acidity and medium plus finish. This would go great with lobster. 91 points
    Day 3: Beautiful. Lemon, shells, tangerine and orange peel. Chablis like. Medium finish and good acidy. Quite a transformation over day 1 to 2 and 3. Buy this! 92 points
    Recommendation: If you are drinking this on day 1 hold for 2 to 3 years. If you drink it over 3 days you will see an amazing transformation. (92 points)
