2006 Rhys Vineyards Home Vineyard San Mateo County Pinot Noir

13.3% alc., $59. · Marvelous Pinot scents of dark red cherries, roses and a touch of butterscotch. Highly unique flavors of exotically spiced dark red stone fruits and fraise de bois with a complimentary hint of oak. A wine of great finesse, very smooth in texture, with gossamer dry tannins and a lengthy, scented aftertaste. Still drank beautifully the next day from an opened and re-corked bottle (I polished it off). Reviewed February 25, 2009
