Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 94+ JG.
"The 2017 Alpine Vineyard bottling of pinot noir from Kevin Harvey, Jeff Brinkman and their team at Rhys is flat out gorgeous in this vintage. The bouquet is already hitting on all cylinders, wafting from the glass in a complex and elegant blend of black cherries, black plums, dark chocolate, complex soil tones, a touch of pigeon, lovely spice tones, a dollop of new wood and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is very pure, refined and full-bodied, with lovely sappiness down at the core, excellent mineral drive, blossoming complexity, fine-grained tannins and a long, vibrant and very classy finish. This is a great pinot noir in the making." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Jul/Aug 2019, Issue #82
Provenance: The Irlandais Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $180
