Alpine Vineyard Pinot Noir, Rhys Vineyards
The 2019 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard is a wine of nearly indescribable finesse. The sweet floral and savory bouquet alone is so enticing. Bright beams of minerality give the 2019 a feeling of energy that builds with time in the glass. The Alpine is not terribly forthcoming today, but it is clearly a long-distance runner. Give it time in bottle. The 15% whole clusters are nicely integrated.
