2015 "Three Amigos" Pinot Noir
Three Amigos Vineyard, Carneros, CA
Robert Sinskey Vineyards
What we love
Ripe black cherry, strawberry, red plum and raspberry highlight an array of delicious red fruits while violet and rose lend a floral character backed by earthy notes, fennel, sandalwood and cinnamon. The wine was aged in about 30% new French Oak in the RSV caves for almost one year to produce an elegant and exceptional bottle of wine.
About this Wine
Planted with chosen heirloom selections and French clones of Pinot Noir, the Three Amigos Vineyard is RSV’s oldest vineyard. Not only was it RSV’s first vineyard, it was RSV’s first vineyard to be converted to organic practices almost three decades ago.
2015 marked the fourth year of drought, resulting in small, compact clusters. Hand harvested at night and delivered cool to the cellar door in the early morning, the grapes were de-stemmed and fermented on natural yeasts. Due to the drought, the smaller berries and thicker skins led to a higher skin to flesh ratio that delivered concentrated flavors with firm acidity and tannins.
This vintage of the Three Amigos Vineyard Pinot Noir has bones for the long-haul… if you can resist the temptation for the instant gratification it provides now.
