2013 Rhys Alpine Hillside Pinot Noir

October 2020: Developing quite well, can drink now but still improving.

August 2016: The rich black fruits and crushed rock minerality expected from Alpine are emboldened here, densely woven into this wine’s silken texture. A very high percentage of whole clusters offers a beguiling rack of aromatic spices. Cool-fruited freshness beckons you quickly back to the glass to explore the complex savory notes underpinning the primary flavors. Hold.
