Community Tasting Notes 21
October 29, 2013 - A beautiful bottle. No brett, no signs of the difficult year. This is in prime time, though it took at least a couple of hours after double decanting for it to show itself fully. The aromatics were stunning.
May 18, 2013 - i've gone through just over a half a case of this, and sadly this was my last bottle. this particular bottle is a bit past its prime and some of the complexity has dissipated. it's still a delight to drink.
November 4, 2012 - This is the first convincing red Rhys I've had, and it was very convincing. Beautiful, soaring aromatics; haunting stuff. This is what SCM Pinot should be: red fruits with spicy overtones and real minerality. Could use a more density and depth, but these vines were babies. Now, if only the pricing will slow down so I can stay with them.

May 4, 2012 - loamy soil, stemmy bay leaf, rose petals on a barn-yardy note. Much less oak presence than the 04 Alpine I had recently. On the palate, saline, moist soil, cherry, and a nice sappy presence, herbal and long. Reminds a little of a nice Chinon.
February 14, 2012 - This had a tough flighting, behind two good burgs, and I think suffered due to that placement. Still showing more primary than anticipated. Interestingly, I recall having this a few years ago and think it showed better at that point.
