JEB DUNNUCK RATING: 93
JEB DUNNUCK REVIEW: Coming all from the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2017 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains Alesia is similarly colored yet offers a more complex, mineral-laced style. Notes of black raspberries, sassafras, forest floor, and ample spice nuances give way to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully polished, layered Pinot Noir that's already drinking beautifully, yet will cruise for 7-8 years in cool cellars if you're so inclined.

JOHN GILMAN REVIEW: The wine is absolutely stellar on the nose (and may well be the most beautiful bottle of wine I have yet tasted from Kevin Harvey and his team that wears the Alesia label), soaring from the glass in a very expressive and complex blend of dark berries, black plums, gamebird, raw cocoa, a touch of anise, very complex, gently autumnal soil tones, black tea, baking spices and just a touch of new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, light on its feet and nicely soil-driven, with modest tannins, lovely focus and grip and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. This is made from younger vines in some of the very best parcels owned by Rhys Vineyards, and though it does not have the inner core of those top bottlings, it has all of the personality and complexity!
