Very high toned, sweet wood spice, arugula, bitter greens, dark cherry, elegant and lean smelling yet intense with green melon rind and green tobacco notes framing the fruit. Gains a meatier edge with air, yielding a touch of prosciutto and bacon fat a...

What a gorgeous glass of wine. The nose was slender yet beautifully focused with tart cherry and cranberry up front with a whiff of grapefruit, which was followed by a soothing note of nutmeg and contrasted by soil and florals tones. On the palate it w...

Pretty garnet color. Fairly fruity nose. Very light bodied on the tongue. Some hints of red cherry, maybe, strawberry, but pretty subtle. At mid-palate good supporting acid appears. At rear palate and on the finish there is some sort of funkmay be Sulphur, may be bacterialthat really detracts. Read More
Paul, a lot of people insist that there are excellent low-dollar wine buys. ... ... after finishing of the Rhys, tonight, and, sadly, it had not improved by day 2, I opened another one of those Riojas that I found at Costco. That's the third bottle of that one. I'm going to have to go back and get more of that.Al, I post my observations on ... Read More
Ive heard of people getting a meatiness from some red wines and Ive never understood that until right now. The nose on this wine is meaty, but, also, with, maybe a sensation that I would associate with tart fruits. On the tongue there is only a hint of fruit (blueberry?), but there does seem to be a taste that makes me think of raw beef. The... Read More

v v, there seems to be a lot of cooperation between vineyard owners who are ... excellent QPR from Alesia/Rhys. A variety of tongue sensations--red fruit, wood, briar, mineral, musshroom--but nothing over the top. Very gentle on tannin. Good acid, but, again, not over the to Read More
Time for my Vitamin AS More oaky than any other Alesia/Rhys that I can recall. Lots of butterscotch (w/o the sweetness) on entry. Some tropical fruit. Some tartness on the back of the palate, but, you know me, I like acid in my white wines and this one could use more. On the other hand, Mrs. EMark is loving this. Read More
Very much an oaky, buttery nose. Yup. Serious butter or, maybe even, butterscotch (without the sweetness) on the tongue. A touch of tropical fruit flavor towards the back of the palate. Some tartness at the back of the palate, but, generally, fairly light on acid. Suggestion of mint and cinnamon (?) on the aftertaste. Read More
Franny Beck?Another one I have to learn about.Sounds like you're home, now. ... to have helped. That Rhys Chardonnay was REALLY goo Read More
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
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
