TN: 2017 Rhys Pinot Noir Mt. Pajaro Vineyard

Rhyming aromatics, as it has distinct meat and beet character. Palate is brighter, with more dark cherry, but still a little bloody in nature. It’s a Pinot with a knife in its clutches, ready to cut you. Subtly drying tannins on the finish, as if the knife is being wiped across its rough sleeve. This is an interesting wine, as it gets a little more tannic as time goes by, moving from gruff to feral. It definitely has an attitude, so give it respect. I like the mean streak, and will wait on my other (500 ml) bottles for a while.
