Small production. RSV has under 200 acres of vineyards in 5 Carneros locations & a winery in the Stags Leap District. The wines are 100% organic. Ruby with berry, cherry & spice aromas. On the palate flavors of wild strawberry & cherry with complex spice, citrus, oak and balanced acidity. Fine soft tannins, good balance, long finish with an earthy characteristic ending with notes of vanilla spice. Nice! — 9 days ago
Fantastic stuff. Lots of bramble on the nose. Strawberry, cedar, even honey and fig. Gets more complex in the glass. Tons of fruit on the palate. Medium acid and tannin still holding strong with a medium finish. 13.4% — 7 days ago
Bravo Etude, Bravo!
Outstanding execution here, textbook CA PN w/out being overdone or over extracted: just a gorgeous nose of beautifully ripe cherry, strawberry & red plum, generous warm baking spices, smoky tea, vanilla and more. Intoxicating nose mirrored on palate. Med bodied but so generous it drinks bigger. Smooth suave, freshness abounds, seamless through finish. Only minor point is length of finish gives this away as entry level, but for the price: buy a case. — 6 days ago

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, bitter herbs, light vegetables, earth and spices.
Tangy finish with spices and almonds.
This is a very tasty Pinot Gris from Mendocino County. Nicely balanced, spicy and tangy.
This Single Vineyard Pinot Gris is showing a really pretty nose.
Feels more like a Californian Sauvignon Blanc.
Easy drinking and good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Nose: sour cherry, citrus, hint of pineapple
Palate: balanced sweetness and acidity
Finish: long, opens up to oaky vanilla — 9 days ago
N: lots of rhubarb and faint cinnamon, some bark, woodland, some strawberries.
P: Reddish/Brown on the palate, very….cedar. Nice acidity, but very gentle. Almost funky, you want some more funk, but nooo. Red fruits down the middle, lovely mouthfeel. @ wtso bargain. You feel good about it, but it’s not gonna rock your world.
Addendum: 2nd day, kept refrigerated w rubber stopper, definite tannic development and palate interest.
I bet w much air time, these might just deliver above their price pt. — 6 days ago
