Winemaker's Notes

Over fifteen years ago, when RSV began making Vin Gris, almost no one wanted a dry pink wine. It didn't matter then that the Vin Gris was made from top quality Pinot Noir grapes grown on Robert Sinskey's organically farmed Los Carneros vineyards. No matter the wine's versatility with food, its intriguing color, purity of flavor, or lack of residual sugar. No, everyone feared they might face the accusation of drinking that sickly sweet, soda pop of a wine called White Zin. Nowadays, though, folks can't get enough.

Emanating from the glass, a brilliant display of salmon tinged with copper teases the eye. The aromas of summer berries and citrus triggers a Pavlovian response in anticipation of the first sip. Tangerines, cranberries, strawberries and melons dance on the palate, animated by bright refreshing citrus-like acidity. The deep, intense flavor and supple mouthfeel make the Vin Gris much more than a quaffing wine, though, admittedly, it is difficult to resist quaffing.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
