Winemaker's Notes:

Pastel pink color touched by a bit of orange tempts the eye. Aromas of wild strawberry and lime mingle with just a hint of sweet herbs. Those berries burst on the palate joined by zesty but puckerless notes of cranberry and the part of a watermelon just beneath the pink fruit. There's a delicious savory note as well that reminds you that this is Pinot Noir. The wine is notably rich in the mouth, but with its ample cut it provides the sort of extreme refreshment that makes the urge to guzzle it all down tough to resist.
My Notes:

About Robert Sinskey Vineyards:

With a humble beginning of just 15 acres of vineyard land in the early eighties, RSV’s has grown to just under 200 acres of prime vineyard in five Carneros locations and a small 4.8 acre estate vineyard next to the winery in the Stags Leap District. The wines are 100% estate-produced. Rob Sinskey, Winemaker Jeff Virnig, and Vineyard Manager Kirk Grace, have created unique methods to grow and produce Pinot Noirs that are silky, elegant, and complex. They also make two California Bordeaux style proprietary reds (the RSV Vineyard Reserve from the Carneros and the RSV Stags Leap District Claret) that have a sense of place and exhibit incredible tactile qualities. The vineyards are farmed and the wines are made 100% organically. RSV also produces limited quantities of Merlot, that explodes with bright fruit character, a non-malolactic Chardonnay that is full flavored with natural, mouth-watering acidity, a whole cluster pressed Pinot Blanc that is free of oak influence, a delicate salmon-colored Vin Gris of Pinot Noir and a few other goodies… just for the fun of it.
