    September 21, 2019 - Darker ruby. Great nose of plum pits, violets, fresh cut plum fruit, earth, oolong tea. Lots of raspberry, black plum, rhubarb, and cherry on the relatively lush palate, with moderate acidity and smoothed tannin. A bit hot. Longer finish of plum and earth. Not as disciplined or taut as the last bottle 6 (!) years ago.

    April 28, 2019 - Medium-dark red color with moderate transparency. Aromas of rhubarb, black tea, pomegranate, and blackberry. Palate has pomegranate, black cherry, rhubarb, and cinnamon with a medium finish. This is drinking well and may improve with more bottle time, but see no need to wait further. Drink or hold.

    December 28, 2018 - In the five years since last tasted this wine has evolved from delightful to a seriously excellent wine. Complex and dark fruited, savory and subtle. This was quite possibly the finest Pinot I've had from Rhys, and a great example of what California can produce. Excellent to Outstanding.

    February 16, 2018 - Almost no signs of further age. Bright, balanced and interesting range of aromas and flavors. Another stellar (but disappeared) Alesia.

    September 24, 2017 - Bottle #3 of 3. Side by side with 2009 Anthill Farms Peters Pinot. This is drier, more substantial, more deeply hued, and has longer life ahead of it. Loved it.
