Rhys Vineyards Pinot Noir Alesia Anderson Valley 2017
WA91: The 2017 Alesia Pinot Noir Anderson Valley is pale to medium ruby-purple with a pretty nose of autumn leaves, bark and cinnamon stick with black cherries, blackberries, raspberry preserves and woodsmoke. The palate is light to medium-bodied, delicate and earthy with juicy acidity and a soft frame, fleshing out to sweet berry flavors on the long finish.
JD91: Mulled cherries, blackberries, crushed flowers, and sappy underbrush notes all emerge from the 2017 Pinot Noir Anderson Valley Alesia, a medium-bodied, rounded, nicely balanced Pinot Noir that has loads of character. It should drink nicely for 4-6 years, although bottles wouldn't last that long at my house.
