The vineyard has 7 million year younger geology on one side, and older aged terrain on the other. The whole vineyard is dry farmed and primed for pristinity in the Rhys cellar.
The 2015 Pinot Noir (Anderson Valley), the second selection from Rhys’s Bearwallow vineyard, is gorgeous. Sweet red cherry, hard candy, wild flowers, mint and rose petal notes are pushed forward in a pliant, supple Pinot that will drink well right out of the gate. There is so much to like here, including the wine’s engaging, up-front personality. This stellar appellation-level wine overdelivers big time. Don’t miss it.
