2007 Rhys Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Saturday, February 26, 2011 - It was a mistake to open this last night. It was rather closed even after 90+ minutes in the decanter as I drank nearly half the bottle in vain. My sinuses re-congested overnight to the point that I passed on the pickup day today @ Rhys, but I have savored a long glass here on day 2 in a period of clarity and it is showing far better, with deep black cherry, pomegranate, and tangy-sweet minerals with superb acid balance. I agree with those who report that the sappy fruit sits over the stemmy structure, boding well for the future. Hold.
