Robert Sinskey Abraxas Sonoma 2011

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Abraxas vibrates with life. It is a pure, true and honest representation of the cool 2011 vintage from RSV's organic and Biodynamic Scintilla Sonoma Vineyard. The wine has vibrant and bright notes of lime, Asian pear, lychee and mineral with a beautiful mid-palate weight that sings with a broad range of cuisine. It works with challenging foods like asparagus, yet is the perfect foil for shellfish, pork and even a simply cooked joint of beef. It is hard to fail with this well balanced wine... fish tacos, check! Cheese, check! Pad Thai, check! Yellow curry, check! Provencal lamb, check! A nice dinner companion ... that's up to you. - Winery 2011 Cuveé:41% Riesling28% Pinot Gris23% Pinot Blanc8% Gewürztraminer

To taste an RSV wine at home or in a restaurant is a good thing; however, to experience a flight of RSV wines, in the place they were made, can be a very enlightening experience.

To taste an RSV wine at home or in a restaurant is a good thing; however, to experience a flight of RSV wines, in the place they were made, can be a very enlightening experience. Find out why RSV was named Sunset magazine’s tasting room of the year and the Wine Spectator featured it as a must visit winery in Napa Valley. But don’t take their word for it, come see it yourself. Great wine is about good food and good people. You will find all that and more at RSV. Requests for tours are tentative until confirmed via email or phone. Your mobile phone number is important so we can contact you in the unlikely event that a change is necessary. Read less

A pale, brilliant platinum blond color heralds the wine's purity. With a snap of the glass stopper, aromas explode from the bottle. A swirl of the glass amplifies scents of apples, citrus, and stone fruit; all backed by flowers, herbs, yeast and a beguiling minerality. The wine crackles with energy on the palate, ethereal and vivacious, but with power and substance. Crisp flavors of apple and lemon overlay more luscious notes of peaches with sweet green herbs, white flower, a touch of ginger, and that persistent mineral character. - Winery43% Pinot Gris32% Pinot Blanc15% Gewurztraminer10% Riesling
