Rhys Vineyards Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard 2009, 750mL (WA94, ST93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Rhys Vineyards Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2009
Region: US
Appellation: San Francisco
Producer: Rhys Vineyards

WA94, ST93
Rated 94 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2009 Pinot Noir Family Farm is one of the more delicate, ethereal wines in the lineup. Fermentation with 100% whole clusters gives the Family Farm a distinctly floral bouquet and graceful fruit. It is an impeccably elegant wine from start to finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2019.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine Advocate.Additional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Inspired by a love for Burgundy, proprietor Kevin Harvey has set his sights on making top-flight Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The Pinots in particular are exceptional for their sheer personality, but I also think the wines could also prove to be some of the most long-lived Pinots from California because of their minerality and structure. I tasted a wide range of wines with Harvey and winemaker Jeff Brinkman, including a number of older Pinots going back to 2006. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) none of those older wines appears close to being ready to drink! The Rhys team is obsessed with their vineyards. Everything else is fairly straightforward. The Chardonnays are vinified using ambient yeasts. The wines are not racked until they are prepared for bottling, which is done with no fining or filtration. The Pinots are made in a similarly minimalist fashion, with a high percentage of stems (50-100%) and little manipulation in the cellar. Harvey describes 2009 as a cooler vintage overall than 2008.`
