TN: 2011 Rhys Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard

  • 2011 Rhys Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard - USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains (3/26/2019)
    This wine is in a great place for what is supposed to be a tough vintage. The lower ripeness level is noticeable but it provides for a lively wine with tart red fruit and moderate to low tannins. A more rustic Rhys but light and refreshing. Time to drink up. (91 pts.)

Lovely nose of cranberry, underbrush and just a hint or orange peel. Bright acidity, cranberry fruit on a medium intense palate. My favorite of the 2011’s I have tried from Rhys - teeters on the edge of underripe, but still delivers good complexity and pleasure.

Best 2011 Rhys. .
