"Bright ruby-red. High-pitched red berry and potpourri scents show excellent clarity. Juicy, spicy and vibrant on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and candied rose flavors and a touch of blood orange. Takes a darker turn to blackberry with air and finishes long, spicy and gently tannic. A. Galloni -- 93pts The 2012 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard is wonderfully supple and radiant, with the fruit front and center and aromatics more in the background. Silky tannins support a core of dark red stone fruits, spices, new leather and pine. I expect the 2012 will provide a wide and relatively long drinking window of pure pleasure. The 2012 was done with 60% whole clusters, all beautifully integrated, even at this early stage of the game. A View from the Cellar -- 93pts The 2012 Family Farm Vineyard bottling of pinot from Rhys is another outstanding example of the vintage, delivering an excellent and exotically spiced bouquet of dark berries, black currants, woodsmoke, fresh thyme, mustard seed, dried eucalyptus, beef stock, dark soil tones and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still very primary, with moderate tannins, lovely focus and grip, tangy acids and a long, classy and light on its feet finish. Beautiful juice. 2018-2040. "
