Robert Sinskey Abraxas Scintilla Sonoma Vineyard Los Carneros 2014

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Tasting Notes: Besides earthquake and drought, the 2014 was a beautiful vintage. The berries were gorgeous, thicker skinned, more intensely flavored and perfumed than the prior two vintages. The wine has crisp acidity, and low pH which would suggest it will continue to evolve for long term interest. Honeysuckle, lilac, lychee, almond and white pepper aromas, backed by an exotic kaffir lime citrusy note, claims this wine’s place as a true aromatic. The palate is vibrant with crisp, mouthwatering acidity with notes of pear, almond, pineapple and green apple with a firm mineral backbone. This wine is delicious with both haute cuisine and comfort food. The big surprise will be in how well this wine ages.

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.
