Story

"The 2011 vintage on RSV’s organically farmed SLD Estate Vineyard survived a drought year only to be hit by rain during spring flowering, resulting in one of the smallest sets in our history. Almost dry farmed, the four acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and half acre of Merlot produced tiny clusters of grapes with thicker than average skins. The vintage was long and cool, but otherwise uneventful in RSV’s Stags Leap District Estate Vineyard. The season allowed full flavor development as the grapes benefitted from a long hang time in the cool weather. The fruit ripened evenly, yet maintained good, mouth watering acidity balanced by mature tannins." More at RobertSinskey.com
