The top current release of Pinot Noir is undoubtedly the Rhys 2006 Pinot Noir Alpine Hillside (200 cases). An impressive array of black raspberries, blueberries, violets, and crushed rocks soar from the glass of this dark ruby-colored wine. Structured, with moderate tannin, crisp, zesty acidity, and gorgeous purity, this is a sensational Pinot Noir that should evolve for at least a decade or more. (RP)
A beautifully complex nose features both dark red berry and blue fruit aromas nuanced by hints of herb, anise and a touch of minerality that continues onto the intense, precise, vibrant and serious medium-bodied flavors that possess a lovely and firm texture on the dry finish, which is used in the best sense of the term. This has nothing in common with the lush and opulent style of CA pinot and the texture is actually quite Burgundian with its dusty tannins and delineated mouth feel. A very impressive effort that has both the mid-palate concentration and the balance to age well though note that patience will be required. Drink: 2012+ *Outstanding*
Bright red. Vivid red berry aromas are complicated by dusty minerals and fresh floral qualities. Crisp and sharply focused, offering racy strawberry and raspberry flavors and tangy minerality. The brisk, clean, long finish offers an energetic berry flavor. An elegant balance of sweetness and vivacity. (JR)
Serves up a tasty mix of cherry and blackberry fruit that's sleek and refined. Spicy floral scents, dried berry and fine-grained tannins offer a minerally edge. Long, elegant and complex. (JL)
