2014 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (1.5L)

SKU #1305508 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A wine I think is the best vintage to date, the sensational 2014 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard comes from one of the top sites in all of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Incredibly complex, with layers of sweet black cherries, black raspberries, barnyard, wild herbs and spice, it has medium to full-bodied richness, a pure, impeccably balanced texture and a great finish. Drink this gorgeous Pinot Noir anytime over the coming 10-15 years. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard is one of the most subtle wines in the lineup. Black cherry, plum, mint, hard candy and sweet spices, along with ripe, silky tannins, give the wine its sense of creaminess and textural finesse. Super-expressive aromatics and layered, plush fruit add to the wine's considerable appeal. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2014 Rhys Horseshoe Vineyard pinot noir is one of the lowest octane reds in the lineup this year, coming at 12.9 percent alcohol. As was the case with the 2013 a year ago, this shows a bit of its stems from the inclusion of whole clusters, but this will just deliver more complexity when the wine is really ready to drink. The complex bouquet delivers a very refined constellation of sappy black cherries, plums, a touch of grilled meat, black minerality, raw cocoa, fresh herbs and a discreet base of spicy oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely reserved in personality, with a great core, superb soil signature, fine-grained tannins and a very, very long, transparent and gently meaty finish. This is the first 2014 single vineyard bottling in the lineup that strikes me as surpassing its excellent 2013 counterpart! This will need time in the cellar, but it will be stunning when it is ready to drink. Drink between 2022-2060. Inner quote mark (8/2016)
