Robert Sinskey 2009 POV
I sat with my nose dug into this Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv blend for almost 5 minutes. It took me there. Memories of warm buttered toast on a rainy day and opening blackberry jam as your mouth waters in anticipation. I always love how olfactory memories emerge from the depths of your mind with just the right trigger. So cool.
Easy going as it hits your palate. A blend of spices and acidity drum together in a crescendo of intensity. She’s feisty on the back of your palate and unapologetic to boot. A minx. A wine for the mature but playful sensibility.

Winemaker Notes: “The 2009 vintage of POV has elegant aromas and flavors of dark plum and cherry fruit backed by complex savory notes of olives, dried herbs and hints of earthy leaves of tobacco or tea. The tannins are firm yet supple, suggesting optimally ripened fruit that offer a nice weight on the mid palate, assuring this wine will be a crowd pleaser at the dinner table.”
