Consumed with friends at their home in Napa. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is classic Rhys. Vanilla, lemon cream and this time a slight herbal note (in a good way). Nice acidity. Complex and deep. This wine has entered into a very early maturity and is showing some development. It is also delicious. Long finish. This should continue to develop for the next five years and be good for at least ten more after that. Further upside is likely. It goes well with seafood, fowl and grain based dishes.
