    I drink a lot of wine, I mean A LOT. A friend of mine gave me a bottle of 2001 Robert Sinskey Vandal Vineyard Pinot Noir and I stashed it away not thinking much of it. For some reason, I didn't have a high opinion of Robert Sinskey Vineyards (RSV), not that I ever had any of their wines. As I read the label, I learned that RSV is an organic wine made via sustainable agricultural practices. So I went to their site and learned about the committment to sustainable farming and that it is one of the few certified organic wines. If you know wine, you will know there are very few organic wines. Vandal Vineyards is one of six organic vineyards at RSV. The wine is a cool climate Pinot made from the Pommard Clone. The 2001 I had is very Burgundian in style. It is medium ruby red in color. Dark cherry fruits on the palate, very clean, good minerality and earth. A very balanced Pinot, not what you would expect from Napa. Oh and it is organic. It ain't cheap, but it is very well made. Go give it a try.
