2010 Rhys Pinot Noir Home Vineyard

Community Tasting Notes 12

June 8, 2015 - This is still fresh and primary with a slick and glossy texture, though without the "dialed up to 11" fruit intensity of the Swan Terrace. It was enjoyable right out of the gate and a very tasty drink but right now there isn't much more going on than the pure fruit.2 people found this helpful Comment
April 6, 2015 - This was what I thought was a 2010 Bearwallow. It is actually the Home...
A beautiful follow to the 2012 MacDugal Ranch from Kutch. This is darker, but still perceptually red fruited and just as delicious. It might be a little deeper and more complex. Awesome wine.
I realize I am out of these already and wish I had a couple to age. Hopefully Kevin and Jeff will release some these later from their library... and forget that I have had a tough time with their 2010 Horseshoe Chardonay on the same night!
February 3, 2015 - clearly Burgundian which is the double edged sword for me, lots of structure and clearly pinot but personally I think I'm just a fruit whore when it comes to pinot. Starting to open more on day 2 and becoming more expressive and hopefully tonight it really struts its stuff
November 14, 2014 - A glorious and educational tasting of Swiss wines (Bern, Switzerland): I brought this as a ringer, and I think it showed well enough. If anything, it was much more at home with the other wines than the Esmonin ringer had been.1 person found this helpful Comment
October 11, 2014 - Rhys Tasting With The Gang (My House): Tasted with 2010 Family Farm. In this instance, the Home outshined it. For one thing, the Home is less stemmy aromatically and for me what shows instead is a herb note, than the stem signature of the FF. Juicy here, maybe a touch riper than the FF. Also here is a real depth, with stony raspberry and black cherry, with a terrific, leaner styled finish. One of my best WsOTN.1 person found this helpful Comment
