Strawberry, spice, earth, and faint herbal/bell pepper note dominates the nose. Bright strawberries, spice, pepper, and a nice silky acidity provides moderate intensity in the mouth. Showing well tonight baby!

It wants to be a luscious Rhys, but the 2010 brightness doesn't quite sync up.

Succulent red fruit and stemmy entry, I really like the balance and flavors

What you’d expect of a 9 year old highly rated Rhys Pinot. 👌

Lots of sediment. Need to decant. Not as special as some bottles of Rhys I’ve had lately.

Drinking well now - just wish there was more acidity. I don't see any upside in holding.
