Robert Sinskey Commander Zinskey

Los Carneros, Napa Valley

Colour: red


100% Zinfandel

Tasting Notes: The Commander Zinskey is not your normal Napa Valley Zinfandel. The organic and Biodynamically farmed half acre planting of Zinfandel on top of RSV's Vandal Vineyard lends itself to a wine that is elegant and balanced, with just 13.8% alc by volume. This "claret" style Zin is subtle at first whiff with hints of blackberry and bramble spice. The dark liquid almost vibrates with purity as the first taste reveals a tight structure with cornerstones of fully resolved tannin and mouth watering crispness. As the wine swirls in the glass, it becomes a quiet storm as the flavors begin to open with waves of black fruit, licorice, bramble and warm spice. It is a delicious wine that will only improve with time, both in the glass and in the bottle. It is everything a classic Zinfandel once was... and can be.
