"The 2013 iteration of Family Farm pinot noir from Rhys Vineyards is an utterly suave and classy bottle of young pinot, with a black fruity personality, tons of soil signature and outstanding structural integrity that will carry it far into the future. The simply gorgeous bouquet jumps from the glass in a complex blend of sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, espresso, stony soil tones, sarsaparilla, fine herbs and a gentle touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very soil-driven in personality, with a great core of fruit, superb focus and grip, fine-grained tannins and stunning length and grip on the nascently complex finish. This is going to age magically, and though it will be approachable upon release, please leave it alone in the cellar for at least the next five years (perhaps after dipping into a single bottle just to see where it is going!) and allow it to fully blossom. Its apogee of peak drinkability will probably be ten to twelve years down the road. 2020-2050. 94+.
