Rhys makes some of the most "Burgundian" Pinot Noirs in California. This one, however, seemed more California in style. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has dark cherries and a slight cola note I don't remember getting before. On the palate, black cherries with a slight dark chocolate note. Tight but quite complex. It unwinds in the glass. Still drinking quite youthfully. Delicious now, but I suspect it will evolve and mature for a decade or two. Wonderful wine with plenty of upside.
