2012 Family Farm. Still in the late stages of primary. Beautiful light body, but dark color. Rich fruit compote flavors, heavy on the black cherry and some cigar box notes. Finishes with a hint of orange peel. Still lots of life left here.

Clean but not crisp. Deep but not complex. Integrated but still oaky.

Maybe not quite as open as the Horseshoe, but still great fruit and enough acid to balance it out.

Drinks like a Volnay, floral, elegant, balanced, great with food. Rhys is hitting all cylinders with the pinots.

A very elegant, red berries and floral notes, great balance with polished tannins and medium body pinot. Rhys does some of the very best California pinots and the only thing is to give them 6 to 8 years in bottle. Drink or hold. Highly recommended.
