Rhys Vineyards Family Farm Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Intense and profound Burgundy-like Pinot Noir nose with beautifully pure red fruits and a subtle hint of spices and a mineral touch. Like a hypothetical blend of high quality Burgundy (Echézeaux) and German Baden Pinot Noir (Martin Wassmer Castellberg comes to mind). Profound, very elegant with silky tannin and long aftertaste. A beauty indeed. 2013 vintage. Not cheap at 99 euro but unfortunately that is the price of Pinot Noir at this level. 2013 vintage.

Brilliant raspberry and raspberry leaf mixes with red currant and crushed stone over a bed of cedar and pine boughs.

Much better than a prior flawed bottle. Fresh cranberry and pomegranate with warm spices. Classic california cool climate Pinot. Drink em if you got em, this is very good and I don’t think it will improve from more age.

Red cherry, liqueur, some jam, orange peel, new world without the heat. Primary. Aging glacially and gracefully. In 375.

I have experienced more bottle variation (in a bad way) with the bottlings from this vineyard than from any other Rhys vineyard... This was a good one!

Great red berry flavors (raspberry and strawberry) and a bit of cherry. A nice floral aspect to the nose too. Acidity is reasonably integrated but still a tiny bit tart. Very nice.

Raspberry, liqueur, rich red fruit flavors. Awfully young and in need of cellaring. Lots of potential.

Clean and clear red berry fruit with a hint of pomegranate, some baking spice. No funk, brett or real earthy quality to speak of. Enough structure to lay down for a bit. Gathered some complexity in the glass but this one has never had quite the depth of either Bearwallow or Alpine for me.

From 375 ml, scintillating red fruit and spice, quite beautiful.
