Robert Sinskey is one of our favorite Napa Valley producers and his Pinot Noir is a classic - get the new 2009 while its still available. The color filters light down to a beautiful translucent ruby, brilliant and pure. The aromas could not come from anything other than Pinot Noir, reminiscent of cherry, tea, pie spice and a forest in autumn. The cherries burst red, ripe and zingy on the palate, the tea persists, as does the earthiness, all joined by a touch of clove and vanilla. The flavors live on a silken sensual texture brought into balance by invigorating brightness. Food brings out the best in this wine, tempering its vibrancy, while deepening and focusing its cascade of flavors.
