"A relatively high-toned nose reflects notes of red raspberry, spice, floral and soft wisps of menthol. Once again there is a beguilingly sleek and seductive texture to the delicious middle weight flavors that possess good mid-palate volume, all wrapped in a dusty, moderately firm and expansive finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. This offers excellent depth and like the Family Farm, it's not so structured as to prevent it from being enjoyed young." -Allen Meadow
"Even better than it was from barrel, the 2016 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard is a flat-out stunner. Crazy, beautiful, deeply spiced aromatics literally explode from the glass. Broad and ample on the palate, with tremendous intensity, the Horseshoe has a lot to offer. Orange peel, mint and spice overtones add an exotic flair. This is an utterly captivating Pinot Noir from Rhys." -Vinous
"The 2016 Pinot Noir Horseshoe Vineyard takes some time to unwind in the glass, unfurling to reveal notes of strawberries, red cherries, rich spices, forest floor and subtle grilled meat. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, taut and youthfully firm, its bright core of concentrated fruit framed by chalky, fine-grained tannins. This is one of the most tightly coiled wines in the range and will require 5 or 6 years of patience. But when it shows all its cards, its precision and energy will be striking." -Robert Parker
"Real verve on the nose, bright and intense red fruits with a hint of green tea. The palate is floral and lifted, with jasmine, red cherry and wild strawberries. Elegant yet intense, this ethereal wine is harmonious, approachable yet complex and very moreish."
