Sinskey Robert Vandal Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007
Brilliant, translucent ruby color gleams from the glass while bright red fruit and spice aromas greet. Classic flavors of red raspberries, cranberries, and orange peel conspire with sensual, earthy undercurrents that define cool climate Pinot Noir. The wine balances silky texture against a bright edge that keeps you returning to the glass for more (and then to your plate for another nibble).
Firstly, this is not, as the name indicates a white wine. Vin gris should be white. It is, however, a very pale rose. It has a luscious color - a sort of salmon pink / rose petal color. Its crisp in the mouth, full of soft melon and a delicate strawberry. A pleasant finish with a touch of spice. Has it served with a light breaded chicken breast and steamed vegetables. Overall, this is a light rose. Its very nice, but the price is steep. I debate if its worth it.
Simply the best American rose. We compare each year the Sinskey Vin Gris with the Domaine Tempier Bandol Rose to see which is best. It tends to bounce back and forth, but they both are 100% winners, every year.
External Reviews for Sinskey Robert Vandal Vineyard Pinot Noir
We worked with selections and clones that matured in sync with the local climatic conditions and discovered that later ripening heirloom selections (as opposed to the newer, less subtle, earlier-ripening, French clones) allowed for longer hang time, developing complex flavors while maintaining acidity, structure and moderate alcohol levels.We found that less is more when working with the grapes in the cellar: less manipulation, less additions, less handling, less new wood. We learned to be confident with our fruit and not mask it with cellar cosmetics. - Winery ** Only 11 in Stock **
Aromas of wild berries, cranberry and cinnamon spice dominate the nose. Fresh acidity balances the lush and sensuous texture so important to Pinot Noir, leaving your mouth watering for more.
