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.
April 2012 Rhys Visit--Taste The 2010s (Rhys Estate (At The Winery)): Added to the database and what a treat to be the first one to log a note here. Listed alc of 12.4% with 100% whole cluster and 50% new wood. Shows beautiful aromatics, quite floral. Some decadence in the bouquet but like the 2010 Home pinot, the stems are beautifully woven into this wine already. Perfect balance and yet there is also weight here. Strawberry, raspberry, elegant and even. Just a complete wine with acid, flavor and minerality. This is a helluva wine.
