RSV has just under 200 acres of vineyards in 5 Carneros locations and a 4.8 acre estate vineyard next to the winery in the Stags Leap District. The wines are 100% organic. This deep, well structured red is gorgeous showing a wonderful berry, cherry and spice fruit aroma that carries through to a full palate of strawberry and cherry with complex spice, a touch of oak and fine tannins. Lively acidity gives the wine good balance and carries through the finish with a creamy characteristic ending with notes of vanilla spice. Nice!

So thoroughly good. Complex, full bodied with a long finish. Kinda like, totally the best Carneros Pinot around. Hard to find, sorta, but always amazing when you do. Ahhh, what a treat. So expressive. Ahhh

Served with duck and was a perfect match. The soft Carneros flavors really perked up the meal. Supple strawberry with pomegranate and lavender notes.

Good to get reacquainted with this wine after some years. You'd be hard pressed to find a more complete carneros pinot noir.

Wet forest floor, cranberry, with ultra-smooth mouthfeel and delicate acidity.

Nice bottle of Pinot from Sinskey. I prefer their Cab Franc but the Pinot is always lovely

This Pinot noir is like a warm velvety cranberry pomegranate mushroom tobacco blanket that I wanna snuggle up with.
