Story

"RSV’s organically farmed Three Amigos Vineyard is a stone’s throw from the Napa Marina. It is a cool, foggy, and breezy location… everything that Pinot Noir loves. The beautiful vintage of 2012 provided delicious fruit. The long growing season allowed the fruit to slowly ripen… so slowly that it was the last vineyard of Pinot Noir picked for the season. The fruit was night harvested for arrival at the cellar door bright and fresh at dawn. Fermented on feral yeast, hand punched and aged in French oak, the wine was created by only choosing the most expressive lots from the Three Amigos. It is arguably one of the most expressive Pinot Noirs produced by RSV." More at RobertSinskey.com
