2010 Rhys "Home Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir

SKU #1129881 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The more powerful side of the Santa Cruz Mountains comes through in the 2010 Pinot Noir Home Vineyard. Massive, incisive tannins frame black fruit, savory herbs and tar, in a sort of California version of Bonnes-Mares, with vertical tannins and great overall balance. I suppose the 2010 Home might lack just a touch of finesse, but it makes up for that with its compelling and deeply expressive personality. This is the first vintage that includes predominantly young vines from a recent replanting. It will be interesting to see how this site responds in future vintages, but I have to think the direction is pretty clear. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2012)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Proprietor Kevin Harvey opened a bottle of the 2010 Pinot Noir Home Vineyard to show how the tannins integrate over time. Today, what comes through is a decidedly extroverted voice, with plenty of dark-fleshed stone fruit, game, violet and licorice all pushed forward. The tannins have softened, releasing the perfumed aromatics and layers of racy fruit. Drink through 2022. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2015)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby. Seductive aromas of black raspberry, minerals and potpourri. Silky and focused, with sweet dark berry flavors buffered by zesty acidity. Impressively dense and quite concentrated but comes off lithe and fat-free. Finishes long and sappy, with resonating floral and Asian spice qualities. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark There is a distinct floral character to the ripe and discreetly spicy black cherry and cassis suffused nose. There is fine concentration to the generous, round and relatively large-scaled flavors that possess buried but firm tannins that become more apparent on the impressively persistent finish that delivers excellent depth. I like the balance as well as the delivery. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2013)
