2006 Rhys Vineyards Alpine Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

Most of the wine’s “clones” are heritage selections such as Calera, Hyde, Swan, Wente (a total of 16 different clones). · Still a baby with plenty of tannins to shed, but the fruit core is strikingly pure and satisfying. Richly layered, sturdy on the palate, and possessing a suave texture. Reviewed March 23, 2008
