    September 30, 2017 - The cork just rips to shreds on this bottle, I seem to remember this issue with older Alesias. Strained the wine into glass, the color is ruby salmon and the nose is awesome with raspberries, garden roses, and slate. The palate is supple with minerally red fruit, oak spices, and an herbal stemmy finish. With plenty of life left this wine bodes very well for the ageability of wines in the Rhys' stable. Thanks for setting up the virtual offline Frank.

    December 8, 2015 - This is the best bottle of Alesia Pinot Noir I have had. It is smooth, silky and balanced with just the right amount of sweet fruit to make it delicious. This was the last of my two bottles and I am ver sad that they are gone.
