Wonderful Petite Syrah based wine. BIG and powerful but elegant at the same time! Ripe blue/black fruit aromas and flavors. Nose has touches of lilac and chocolate. Hints of vanilla, milk chocolate and toasty oak come through on the long finish. Deep Maroon/Purple color. Underrated varietal and love the fact that the Caymus Team refers to the grape this wine was made from under its traditional name of Duriff. — 14 days ago
Bee Hunter Wines Greenwood Ridge Vineyards Late Harvest Riesling 2014, Anderson Valley, California
Deep yellow in color with a golden 24 carat hue.
Beautiful nose of yellow apples, ripen pears, minerals, tropical fruits, apricots and spices.
Fill bodied with high acidity.
Sweet on the palate with pears, apricots, honey, apples, tropical fruits and spices.
Long sweet finish.
This is a delicious Sweet Riesling from Anderson Valley. Nicely balanced and rich, with lots of acidity to balance the sugars.
This 7 year old is drinking beautifully now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.
Showing great complexity with beautiful flavors. Good by itself as a sipping wine.
I paired it with a chocolate cake, but I preferred it all by itself.
A special selection that was only produced in this vintage. Very special.
9.7% alcohol by volume.

Striking and expansive nose of red spring flowers, ripe strawberries, blood orange, diced habanero pepper, fresh herbs, a forest floor of pine needles. Palette is less interpretable; delicate, beautiful, simple. Structurally nice with a solid tannin/acid backbone. — 16 days ago
Surprisingly rich and luscious tonight. Enough structure and weight to hold up to really great red-tablecloth Italian. Round, resolved, no noticeable tannins... great dark fruited balance (cherry/blackberry). I think wines from Rhys need serious time... this often dissed 2011 vintage is drinking very well at 9 yrs of age. Creates a problem as I was poised to order fewer. Argh... — 23 days ago
This is well-done in a Burgundian style. Nose has bright, sappy cherry fruit, a little stemmy in a good way, some very Burgundian wet earth. In the mouth it’s bone dry, with just-ripe cherry and earth flavors initially and then crushed rocks and savory tones carrying it through to the finish, which has a very slight bitter note (it works). Nice acids. Medium body. Tannins are there if you wait and look for them, but they’re close to resolved. — 8 days ago
