Robert Sinksey Vin Gris of Pinot Noir (2022) – A rosé for all seasons – this organically farmed, whole cluster pressed Vin Gris of Pinot Noir deserves attention year ‘round. The glimmering salmon color provides a clue that this wine is a pure, vibrant, well crafted beverage. Bright, spring strawberry leads into summer raspberry, guava and peach, contrasted by notes of juicy winter citrus like orange and Meyer lemon. High tone rose petal and lavender add to the allure.
This luscious wine is a joy to drink and, at first glance, can be an easy companion paired with chips and dips, charcuterie, BBQ and simple snacks, but it has a quiet complexity supported by a wonderful structure with a long finish that welcomes serious dinner conversation. Think sashimi, niçoise salad, pad thai, grilled vegetables, porchetta, pasta con la bottarga, herbed or spiced chicken… or the best damn hamburger you can imagine.
