2017 Robert Sinskey "POV" Los Carneros, Napa Valley, California (750ml)
About the Icons
POV is a blend of three classic Bordeaux grape varietals, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grown on the Robert Sinskey certified organic estate vineyards at the southern end of Napa Valley. This 2017 was aged for 19 months in 30% new French oak barrels and is a great expression of that quality Sinskey fruit as well as Robert's impressive blending skills. As he says, "the wine has a deep, dark purple hue that telegraphs its impressive nature as the aromas and flavors of macerated berries (strawberries, blue/blackberries, and cherries), are backed by notes of bay leaf and fennel seed.
The wine obviously came from optimally ripened fruit with supple tannin balanced by just the slightest hint of fine oak barrels and vibrant acidity. Mouth filling and delicious with an incredibly long finish, this wine begs for a seat at tonight’s dinner table." It is so well priced for the quality that goes into this wine and it is often hard to keep in stock since everyone just keeps buying it! The label features Rob Sinskey's stunning black and white photos taken in their vineyards, and on the POV there are three different ones that appear in rotation.
