Rhys Vineyards Pinot Noir Alpine Hillside Vineyard 2007, 750mL (WA94-96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Rhys Vineyards Pinot Noir Alpine Hillside Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2007
Region: US
Appellation: Santa Cruz Mountains

WA94-96
Rated 94-96 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Here are barrel-range scores on some of the other wines which were made in cuvees of 100 cases or less, hence they are virtually impossible to find, but there are some superb wines for those truffle hunters among readers.`Rhys Vineyards produces very ambitious wines from vines planted in specific sites in the Santa Cruz Mountains. They use their second label, Alesia, for purchased fruit. At the conclusion of my tasting notes, I will list the other wines I tasted but which were all in such microscopic quantities (under 150 cases) that it is almost impossible to latch on to a few bottles unless you are on the mailing list. The vineyards are generally tightly spaced (2 by 3 feet for Pinot Noir and 4 by 3 feet for Syrah), and the clonal selections are multiple in order to hopefully achieve more complexity and nuance. This is an impressive, well thought out operation, believing, certainly with Pinot Noir, in whole clusters, no racking, and a minimal, artisinal approach to winemaking. The yields are naturally very small because of the terroirs, rootstocks, and clones, and the wines are made to age.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--
