I really love Rhys with some age. This one is really entering a nice drinking window

A masculine Cali style, but with complexity and structure. Ready to drink.

Fun Friday night wine. The texture is insane and highlight of this wine. The floral finish is killer, too. Aromatics are a bit simple and shut down. Gonna have to keep my hands off the other bottle for some years...

This was much bigger than we all expected. Incredibly well balanced. Quintessential California Pinot on the nose but as air got to this, it started drinking more like a Syrah with black olives.

Beautiful nose that fits exactly what I might expect, just elevated. Cherry, pine and herbs. Limestone, roses, bellpepper and bandaged cheddar. On the palate, things haven't quite come together yet. Harsh and mean. The pyrazines dominate. Wait a little longer?
