2013 Rhys Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard - USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains (7/8/2018)
The story of Rhys has been one of promise and patience. I have been buying, cellaring and drinking the wines since the 2006 vintage. It’s the rare bottle that has seemed ready to drink, or even particularly developed. This 2013 is certainly still quite primary, but it shows an effortless balance, with a deeper substance than prior vintages of this wine. The fruit and structure are evolving in tandem, supplemented by spice, earth and even a hint of citrus. It’s quite amazing, and what I have always been hoping for from the Rhys Pinot Noirs.
