2017 Rhys "Home Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

SKU #1490826 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From the northern part of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2017 Pinot Noir Home Vineyard reveals a translucent ruby hue to go with complex notes of raspberries, sassafras, forest floor, spice, and exotic flowers. This round, medium to full-bodied, seamless effort has building tannins, a terrific sense of balance, and a great finish. Drink it over the coming 8-10 years. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Outer quote mark The 2017 Home Vineyard bottling of Pinot Noir from Rhys is very refined on both the nose and palate. The wine offers up a very pure and complex nose of sweet dark berries, black cherries, cola, a touch of chicory, dark soil tones, a bit of gamebird, gentle new oak and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, complex and nicely reserved in structural profile, with a fine core, ripe, gently chewy tannins and very good length and grip on the tangy and nascently complex finish. This is one Rhys 2017 Pinot cuvée that will demand some bottle age to start to blossom, but it will be just fine when it is ready to go. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Home vineyard was planted in 1995 and the Pinot Noir here has always been made using 100% whole cluster. This vintage, fruit was picked before the heat spike. Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Home Vineyard is youthfully shy, opening slowly to notes of gunflint, toast and earth with dried herbs, sage brush, wild blackberries, black cherries and tobacco leaf with pepper and licorice notes. Light to medium-bodied, it's earthy in the mouth with firmly textured tannins and just enough freshness, finishing earthy. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
