2016 Rhys "Porcupine Hill" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (Previously $100)

SKU #1429138 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A selection from the Bearwallow Vineyard, the 2016 Pinot Noir Porcupine Hill is brilliant stuff and a solid step up over the straight vineyard release. More cassis, crushed flowers, violets, and pine notes all flow to a medium-bodied, silky effort that has building tannins. Vibrant, incredibly pure, and with a terrific finish. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The high density planting from which the Porcupine Hill cuvée hails has produced a wine that is even a bit deeper and more precise than the lovely Bearwallow. The bouquet is beautifully black fruity, offering up a blend of black plums, black raspberries, coffee bean, a touch of cola, dark soil tones, gentle smokiness and a discreet touch of oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and more tightly-knit out of the blocks than the above, with superb mid-palate depth, excellent focus and grip, fine-grained tannins and lovely purity on the long, refined and still quite youthful finish. The higher density planting has produced a wine with a bit more structure than the Bearwallow, but also greater potential for the long haul. Inner quote mark (7/2018)
