The Rhys 2006 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard is a structured, now somewhat backward style of Pinot Noir with deep ruby color, notes of spring flowers, black cherries, dusty, loamy soil nuances, and some underbrush. The wine is deep, layered, but also formidably structured for Pinot, with good acidity and high tannins. Give this wine another 2 years of bottle age and watch it evolve over the following decade or more.

a bit disappointed at the finish. Maybe it needs more time?

This is a seriously structured wine built for mid to long-term aging. Took 24 hours for the fruit to come forward. Nose is subtle with violets and fresh-cut wood. Palate is loaded with tart, dark berries. There is terrific balance and a log smooth finish...would guess young burgundy blind everytime.
