Availability: In stock


Robert Sinskey's vineyards are certified organic, and employ biodynamic principles - lending finesse and a lively quality, while still being clean as a whistle. 

+ TASTING NOTES: An elegant, classic Pinot Noir with a slow reveal that gets better with each taste. A superb growing season resulted in pristine fruit at optimal ripeness from RSV’s organically farmed vineyards. Beautiful aromatics, deliciously complex fruit and spice notes with a youthful vivaciousness make for a perfectly balanced wine.

Aromas and flavors of fresh rose petal, lilac and sage sit atop cranberry, bing cherry, strawberry, blood orange and rhubarb while savory herb, cinnamon and earth notes add a baseline of depth. Pristine and alive, this wine has a beautifully long and vibrant finish. A perfect dinner companion now and for years to come.

+ WINEGROWING NOTES: A “decade” wine… The 1988, 1998, 2008 & 2018 are vintages to love. Cherish the 1988 vintage of Pinot Noir for its bright structure and acidity. Love the unique 1998, a controversial ugly duckling that evolved into a beautiful swan. Rejoice over the joyously flavorful and long lived 2008. Now the 2018, an amazing wine for its depth, complexity and structure. The long, cool growing season rendered beautiful, evenly-ripened Pinot Noir with mouth-watering acidity and firm, longevity-assuring tannins. This cuvée includes 22 individually fermented and barreled lots from RSV’s organically farmed Carneros vineyards, selected from thirteen heirloom selections and French clones of Pinot Noir. The wine is framed by small oak casks (30% new) selected from seven French coopers and aged in the RSV caves for a year.

+ ABV: 13.8%
