The 2016 vintage was ideal for Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon from RSV’s organically farmed vineyards on the “Right Bank of Napa Valley,” aka the Northern Carneros.
A succulent rendition of POV with more fruit forward characteristics than the 2015 vintage. Fully ripened tannins balance the fruit with mouth-watering and mouth-filling flavors and textures. Elegant fruit characteristics of black and red berries, cherry compote and black plum are laced with notes of lavender, rose and dried herbs and framed by a delicate balance of French oak that elevates the aromatics and complements the richness. This sumptuous wine is ready to accompany a savory meal upon release with the optimal structure to evolve long into the future.
this is a wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for the long haul. Lean beef or wild game like venison are the perfect match for a young POV while a few years under its belt will lend the wine the flexibility to work with a broad range of lighter meats like pork and poultry as well as non-meat-centric dishes like pasta with tomato sauce and roasted veggies.
