At Rhys Vineyards we aspire to make great wines from unique and expressive vineyards. This pursuit has lead us to select five different sites in the Santa Cruz Mountains for growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Our overriding belief that unique vineyard expression is the key to truly great wine leads us to an approach that includes: * A relentless, spare-no-expense, focus on producing the best possible fruit in the vineyard * Carefully selected cool weather sites that offer interesting and expressive soil character * Natural winemaking with minimal intervention These core tenets help us produce ageworthy wines that emphasize vineyard expression, balance, fresh fruit, and concentration. – Description from AlexJelena

  • Rhys Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains Alpine Vineyard 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very big oaky nose of vanilla. Yes, on the tongue I get the vanilla, and, maybe caramel. Make no mistake, this is no butter bomb. Citrus fruit flavors come with concomitant hit of refreshing acid. Quite spritely on the back of the palatemy guess is that is coming from the acid. Winner, winner. Read More

  • Alesia Rhys Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly murky maroon color. Something of a microbial noseyogurtwith, maybe, some herbaceousness. Very light hit of strawberry on the tip of the tongue. Fairly light bodied. Negligible tannin. Very light acid. Interesting sensation at the back of the palatemelon, as much as anything. Read More

  • Holy crap.  I logged onto e-mail, today and found that I made the Carlisle ... the Rhys solicitation also arrived today.  Sadly, because of the aforementioned budgets (Rhys is pretty proud of their wine.  It is so much cheaper to drink Zinfandel.) and the fact that I may have enough Pinot Noir to last the rest of my life, I'm probably going to ...

  • Rhys Horseshoe Vineyard Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I see that I commented on this wine, last spring. My notes, this time, are almost like a rerun. Very attractive pale yellow color. Lots of tropical fruit on the nose. Tropical fruit and citrus dominate on the tip of the tongue. As the wine passes mid-palate chalky earthiness pops up. Nicely light on the oak. Good acid freshness. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly light-bodiedprobably falls into the AFWE mold. Light hit of red fruit on entry. Some supporting tannin, but not much. Same for acidits there, but not over the top. An easy to drink winewith or without accompanying food. Read More

  • Mark, your Rhys subscription is really paying dividends, it's great to live vicariously through your experience. We can't be everywhere in the 1st person after all. Ditto for Bedrock though I have more of a shot to pick some of those up at retail or other collectors should I want to. Read More
