- 2009 Rhys Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard - USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains (3/25/2020)
This chardonnay seems disjointed, as though the acidity was an afterthought, coming through on the back end and not in sync with the fruit. But the fruit is subtle in a very enjoyable way - mellow but present with slight notes of citrus, almond and honeysuckle blossom. (88 pts.)
Honestly, I have never been a huge fan of these earlier Rhys chards but it was clear that they were improving every year. And what they are doing has paid off - I think the chards produced in the last 7 or so years have been incredible and get better every year.
