Under the Rhys label, the 2008 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard (600 cases) reveals a dark ruby color along with lots of pomegranate, red currant, and cherry notes, tart acids, medium to full body, a distinct stemminess (that no doubt comes from 100% whole clusters), and firm, hard tannins in the finish. This cuvee is clearly built for aging, and if my instincts are correct, it will evolve for 10-12 years. Range: 89-91+
