Rhys Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Great floral aromatics on this wine. A medium weight Pinot with some elegant notes but an overriding masculinity. Earthy with blackberry fruit and a long finish.

The Rhys 2006 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard is a structured, now somewhat backward style of Pinot Noir with deep ruby color, notes of spring flowers, black cherries, dusty, loamy soil nuances, and some underbrush. The wine is deep, layered, but also for... Alex Lallos. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2006 Rhys Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard 750ml
