Robert Sinskey Three Amigos Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
Is there any other wine variety that evokes such emotion as Pinot Noir? Done well, it is the most interesting, thought provoking, and emotive wine variety there is. As winemaker, working with this vineyard and variety for almost three decades, my expectations differ from manufacturers and marketers whose experience is limited to the "power over restraint" New World style of Pinot Noir. Subtlety, persistence, grace and elegance are descriptors I look forward to when tasting this sophisticated beverage. I've written these words over a one hour time span as I continue to come back to the glass - swirling, sniffing, tasting. The wine is ever changing, improving, amazing. Like a Japanese Haiku, flavors, aromas and senses become juxtaposed and intermingled.
