Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Rhys Vineyards, Bearwallow Vineyard, Pinot Noir, 2014
Antonio Galloni, Vinous
The 2020 Pinot Noir Bearwallow Vineyard is a very pretty wine. Bright and effusive, with lovely red berry fruit, the 2020 is delicious right out of the gate. Sweet spice and floral accents give this mid-weight Pinot terrific lift. The 2020 is not super-complex, but it is quite tasted and expressive today. Drink it over the next handful of years.

Rhys Vineyards

Kevin Harvey’s Rhys Vineyards has built up a near cult like following in just a decade of releases. His bottlings of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah from both the Santa Cruz Mountains and now also the Anderson Valley in Mendocino are rightly seen as amongst the very top echelon of wines produced anywhere in the United States.

Everything about these wines speaks of attention to detail and a deep commitment to making great wine. From purchasing uncoopered staves of the finest French oak a full four years prior to cooperage, to the vast underground purpose built winemaking cellar, no detail is left to chance. In the often steep vineyards, vine density is extremely high and as a result farming is entirely manual and very labour intensive. In the winery, vinification is carried out at a micro-level in tiny 4ft square vats: fermentations are native and everything is gravity-fed without pumping, fining or filtration. In essence, the wines are given kid gloves treatment, and then aged in almost neutral French barrels, so better to promote the site specific characters of the vineyards in the portfolio.
