Wine tasting notes

The 2016 opens up with an expressive but calm nose, all fragrant wild cherry and peppered strawberry notes that float from the glass. On the palate the texture is all limpid ripe fruit, suave acidity, seamless fine grained tannins as flavours of wild herb, peach and strawberry coalesce around this gentle peaty finish

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 92 pts

Like the Bearwallow bottling, the 2016 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard is quite approachable this year, revealing youthfully reserved but already complex aromas of cherries, sweet soil, raw cocoa, forest floor and subtle peony. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, layered and sappy, with velvety tannins and a juicy, mouthwatering finish. It was vinified with only 15% whole cluster this year.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2016) - 94 pts

The 2016 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard is beautifully lifted and precise. Bright red berry fruit and floral notes are nicely layered in a Pinot that speaks to understatement and class. In this range, the Family Farm stands out for its crystalline precision and nuance. All the elements are simply in the right place. The 2016 was done with 15% stems, the least Rhys has used for the Family Farm.
