Winemaker's Notes:

The Vin Gris' delicate hue speaks of purity. Born of whole-cluster pressed Pinot Noir, its copper-tinged salmon color recalls spring in Napa Valley. The wine's beguiling aromas of bright fresh berries and herbs are a delight. A taste induces smiles with a wide palate of refreshing flavors: wild strawberry, cranberry, and watermelon rind, all scented with an implacable category defying floral herb note. Be warned... once a bottle is opened, willpower will be challenged and you will be hard pressed not to finish it. We suggest sharing with a friend or two.
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.
