2011 Rhys "Bearwallow" PN

2011 Rhys “Bearwallow” PN - 13.5%
There’s been some controversy about the 2011 Rhys Pinots, so I’m going to sample some over the next month or so.
Mature light-medium red with onion skin at edge.
Fine spicy, pine sap, blackberry nose.
Elegant, feminine, light bodied pure cherry fruit.
Not an Earth-Mover, but still tasty with no faults except it’s lightness.
A little tannin remains, but this should be consumed in 2019.
A nice, super easy drinking quaffer ideal for veal or chicken.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this wine!

Even considering the price point?

Don’t get me wrong, I love Rhys wines, but 2011 is not up to scratch IMO.

Will further investigate the remaining Rhys 2011s, but this wine is “up to scratch”.
