Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | 93

($49) Deep, bright violet. Deep, intensely aromatic nose of blackberry, cherry, violet and licorice, with a smoky overtone. Lush, expansive and sweet, with a palate dominated by black fruits, spices and smoke. Finishes with velvety tannins and superb lingering sweetness.

The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Syrah Horseshoe Ranch Vineyard (150 cases) exhibits beautiful aromas of acacia flowers, forest floor, red and black fruits, and hints of charcoal as well as camphor. Fresh acids, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a seductive, lush finish suggest it should provide plenty of pleasure over the next decade.

About This Producer

Chiseled deep into a Santa Cruz Mountain hillside with such vast and echoing chambers that it's lovingly termed "the rebel base," Rhys Vineyards and its visionary owner are on a mission. It all started for Kevin Harvey, a Silicon Valley software entrepreneur with a Burgundy obsession, in 1995 when he planted a small Pinot Noir vineyard in his backyard, and has transformed into a quest to uncover the mysteries of his un-glorified appellation's geography and achieve world-class Pinot Noir.

From his first garage wine, Harvey was struck with minerality that reminded him more of Burgundy than any domestic Pinot. So, using ambitious, biodynamic farming of tightly-spaced, high elevation, cool climate vineyards planted in specific sites in the Santa Cruz Mountains with shallow, rocky soils, preferably on hillsides, he set out to make the most mineral-driven, terroir-focused domestic Pinot. The results have garnered overwhelming praise from the entire spectrum of critical review. From Robert Parker to Allen Meadows, it's hard to find anyone who isn't impressed with this passionate operation producing perhaps the best New World Pinot anywhere.
