2012 Rhys Alpine Vineyard Pinot Noir

October 2020: Just entering its drinking window. Saline, spice, and red fruit.

January 2018: The 2012 Alpine Pinot has entered its drinking window. While it is likely to improve further, it is delicious today.

January 2016: This needs a couple of more years to integrate before it is ready to start being opened. Hold.

August 2015: This has tightened since last year. Great freshness and structure. It shows great promise but will need another 1-3 years of cellaring.

January 2015: This Alpine Pinot can be enjoyed now but will improve for many years. Drink/Hold
