    July 25, 2021 - As with Ceritas, I buy mostly their single vineyard wines. But like the Ceritas Costalina, every time I open the Rhys San Mateo I’m surprised how good it is. This was showing so signs age. Loamy black cherries, a little sappy but crisp.

    July 18, 2021 - Slow oxed for 20 minutes. Very attractive nose of plums, raspberries, violets and herbs. Medium bodied, with good poise, energy and acidity. At a great place right now. An excellent entry level wine.

    May 26, 2021 - Tasted over 2 hrs
    -nearly semi-translucent mild clearing
    -fragrant stemmy spice rhubarb fruit and a whiff of maturity
    -med acidity, med/med- weight gentle ripe sweet red fruit slightly smoky with a touch of spice and minerality, med- tannins
    -drinking very well now with just a touch of maturity - has several more good years ahead of it

    April 5, 2021 - My first Rhys and now I am on the hunt for more. One of those pinots that tastes delicate on the entry palate, but then the long, mouth-coating finish really grabs your attention. Nose and flavors of ripe cherry, strawberry, Asian spices. Finessed and voluptuous.

    November 26, 2020 - From magnum on Thanksgiving. Slow ox. Bit of bricking but still vivid ruby and slightly cloudy core. Initially tart and closed, opened and softened throughout the night and into the next day. Red fruit and medium+ acidity, not a ton of earth, layers slowly unfolded. More than 24 hours later was its best. At least from this well-stored large format, not past prime: really good now.
