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 on Snooth

  • Rhys Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains Alpine Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very murky in the glass. Kind of a forest floor nose. On the tongue life is good. Tart red fruit--cherry, mostly, but with some stone fruit. The fruit, I have to add, is not over the top--not syrupy, at all, probably due to the acid. I do get some hints of spice. It could be cinnamon or it could be clove, but "hint" is the operative word. ... Read More

  • Rhys Home Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting herbal/spicy nose--not fruity, at all. There is red fruit on the tip of the tongue--tart and refreshing, not cloying, at all. Acid is very noticeable--in the tartness of the fruit and the spritziness on the edges of the tongue. Medium-boded, Some retro-nasal earthiness. Mosty tartness, again, in the aftertaste, Read More

  • Yes, v v.  I was hurting, this morning.  You'd think I was old ... disappointed.WOTN was the Rhys PN (Gawd it pains me to say that)  Very nice medium bodied wine.  Red fruit, but not in your face.  I've been having a few wines lately that just seem "lean."  While, this one was certainly not a mouth filler, I think the acid balance was spot on....

  • Rhys Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    More-red-than-blue purple color. A tad murky. Tart nose. Very much tart cherry on the tongue. Some stoniness or other kind of minerality. A bit of spritziness, especially, on the tip of the tongue, may be do to acidity. A refreshing, medium-bodied (light-bodied for a red) wine. Read More
