Horseshoe Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

This was elegant and really fine. Flowers, spices and pepper, anise, in a medium length and polished presentation. No rush but is really excellent now. — 5 days ago

Bearwallow Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

A tasting of nine Rhys Pinot Noirs from the 2008 & 2009 vintages. Jeff Brinkman, Rhys winemaker joined our group. I thought the Bearwallow Vineyard from the Anderson Valley was rich and savory - it was our #1 in the lineup. — a month ago

Mt. Pajaro Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

Alder Yarrow
9.4

I recently made the carefully considered claim that there is no more exciting place for making California Chardonnay right now than the Santa Cruz Mountains - @santacruzmountainwine. Some of the most stellar bottles of the stuff are emerging from hidden nooks and crannies among the redwoods and steep, fog-shrouded slopes. This bottle (received as a press sample) is a perfect example. Lemon oil and lemon pith aromas give way to silky-textured lemon pith, lemon juice, pink grapefruit and this saline resinous quality that makes the mouth water excessively. Almost impossible not to follow one sip with another. Well done @rhys_vineyards. The vineyard gets it’s name from the Pajaro shale series that sits under a scant 16” of topsoil at 1000 feet of elevation. — a month ago

Mt. Pajaro Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

From 375. Really nice red fruited wine. Was not expecting as much from this as I didn’t love to MP chard as much as the others from Rhys - but this delivered. Maybe more bottle time helped? Will definitely get more. — 2 months ago
