A “Right Bank” of Napa wine from RSV’s certified organic Carneros vineyards. This aromatic, supple, yet vibrant proprietary cuvée of the classic Bordeaux varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon is full of red berry notes backed by dried violet, fennel or bayleaf like herbs with a subtle spiciness reminiscent of cinnamon or clove.

POV’s cool vintage profile has a lithe body with bright acid. So quaffable that I had to cork the bottle and push it far away before I absent-mindedly sucked down the entire bottle. The bright acid called for fat - crisped duck, juicy pork and cherries, not sweet but tart so as not to bash up against the wine.
