Just a baby. Once the fat melts with some bottle age, this could really sing.

Rhys speaks for itself, even the appellation blends are on another level. 2013 is a knockout year and the goodness shows throughout the vineyard lineup. Just awesome.

I liked this quite a bit. I can't really afford the single vineyard wines but will happily buy this year after year.

Black cherry, spice, fairly dark and intense. Not as much acidity or finesse as I usually find in Rhys pinots.

Elegant, restrained fruit, forest floor finish. Lowish acidity. Really nice.
