-- decanted for a couple hours before tasting -- -- tasted a couple glasses non-blind over 45 min. --
Expressive Nose shows medium oak and some ripe RRV-esque Pinot aromas. Nice acidity and fruit on the palate, and the alcohol wasn't noticeable. Oak from the Nose wasn't as noticeable on the palate. Overall, very nice, and probably best to keep holding in the cellar.
Wait a few years, got much better on day 2, strawberry, forest floor, American for sure but as always had a Burgundian feel and flavor in hot years. Very good overall but as with almost all Rhys they require patients and this was too young.
nose: earthy raspberry and red fruit very aromatic about 20 minutes after opening and pouring into a burgundy glass Palate: smooth, lite but full on the palate, very nice flavors of red fruit, spice and a little earthy elements. Long finish. Would buy again.
