This is also gorgeously layered and brilliantly complex with a stunning nose of rose petal, violet, red and blue Pinot fruit and perhaps the most overt mineral-influence of any wine in the group and this aspect can also be found on the beautifully textured, refined and pure flavors that are an exercise in balance and harmony. In sum, a wine of class and grace that in 10 years may ultimately prove to be as good as the Horseshoe...The estate wines of Rhys Vineyards are made from biodynamically farmed fruit and owner Kevin Harvey and winemaker Jeff Brinkman continue to drive the wines to new heights...That the wines are of very high quality is evident but what is wonderfully refreshing is that the wines are also unique and original. Simply put, they are unlike any other Pinots being crafted in California today.
Vivid red. Smoky raspberry, black cherry, potpourri and a note of candied licorice on the assertive nose. Supple, sappy and sweet, showing racy, mineral-tinged red berry and floral pastille character and excellent clarity. Ripe acids give this wine a juicy, energetic and very pure quality. Finishes with delicate tannins and resonating floral and mineral tones. This is already extremely sexy. (ST)
The 2008 Pinot Noir Swan Terrace (100 cases) possesses abundant amounts of fresh red currant, pomegranate, and floral aromas as well as a distinct earthy, mineral-like component. The least evolved of these wines, it reveals a certain austerity along with good weight, a firm, Burgundian style, crisp acidity, and admirable depth as well as richness. Purchasers will have to exercise discipline as well as patience. (RP) 89-92+
