Winemaker Notes

Rhys took the unusual step of completely destemming the 2011 Horseshoe but it is every bit as complex as any Horseshoe to date. It is best described as beautiful and exotic with intoxicating scents and flavors accompanying the weightless black fruit. Hold.

BH 93
Burghound.com
In much the same fashion as the Alpine this is intensely floral with plenty of spice character to the relatively high-toned red berry fruit aromas. The cool, pure, intense and beautifully detailed middle weight flavors possess a lovely sense of underlying tension while delivering outstanding length on the superbly long finish. This is very much old school in style and quite youthfully austere today so I would strongly suggest allowing this tightly coiled effort to remain hidden in your cellar for at least 6 to 8 years.

Rhys Vineyards, Santa Cruz Mountains, California
The folks at Rhys Vineyards aspire to make great wines from unique and expressive vineyards. This pursuit has lead them to select five different sites in the Santa Cruz Mountains for growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Their overriding belief that unique vineyard expression is the key to truly great wine leads them to an approach that includes: 1. A relentless, spare-no-expense, focus on producing the best possible fruit in the vineyard; 2. Carefully selected cool weather sites that offer interesting and expressive soil character; 3. Natural winemaking with minimal intervention.

These core tenets help produce ageworthy wines that emphasize vineyard expression, balance, fresh fruit, and concentration.
