Decanted 2 hours. Matched with grilled wild sockeye salmon and tortellini salad. Drank in a Zalto Burgundy stem. 12.4% alc. The nose has some pepper, spice and forest floor. The body is medium. The wine has smooth texture. Incredible balance..."Zen like." The wine finishes long....and is definitely a "food" wine. Explosion of flavors with food, "tight" without. Better to hold your only bottle but no regrets uncorking with decant! Bravo Team Rhys...
Rhys Tasting With The Gang (My House): This was spicy, with dark cherry, herbal and tangy, zesty. Tart. So little of this made and my only bottle, not sure if I will have the opportunity to taste this again in the future.
Tasted the '07, '10 and '11 all together in a single flight. My first time with the Skyline wines, and they were all outstanding and so far my favorite of their vineyards, slightly edging out the 4 year '06-'09 Swan Terrace vertical.
