Robert Sinskey, 'Point of View' Napa Valley 2018

Availability: In stock


Limited production from an iconic California winemaker who cares deeply for the land. 

+ GRAPES: A blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Farmed with organic, regenerative practices. 

New World precision meets Old World soul for a 'Right Bank' of Napa claret with unparalleled deliciousness, depth and complexity.

+ PROFILE: Summer-fresh tart bing cherry, ripe raspberry and blackberry bramble lend a crispness from first sip to last. Secondary notes of rose petal, fresh oregano, forest floor and mocha nod to the terroir of the Mayacamas foothills in the northern reaches of Los Carneros. The wine is framed in elegant, understated French oak with a savory core that will continue to open and evolve as the wine ages.

+ FUNDAMENTALS: The grapes are crushed, destemmed and undergo native yeast fermentation. Aged for two years in the RSV caves before bottling, the wine is then allowed to rest for two more years before release.

+ THE LAND: The foothills of the Mayacamas has a band of red volcanic soil that runs through the Cabernet Franc of RSV’s organically farmed Vandal Vineyard. This red soil has a cult following among the growers and vintners of the region and is known for producing some of the most expressive, well-balanced Cabernet Francs on planet Earth.

The old Franc vines carry small clusters of beautiful grapes that hang on the vine until late in the season to be picked at optimal ripeness with lower sugar levels than other Napa 'Bordeaux' varieties. Blended with the bright and vibrant Merlot from RSV’s organically farmed OSR and Three Amigos Vineyards.

+ FUN FACT: The photography on the bottle is by winemaker, Rob Sinskey. Each vintage features three unique images.
