The Long Wait for Sinskey

I was almost ready to call the Washington, D.C. police department and file a missing persons report for Robert Sinskey. More specifically, Robert Sinskey wines.

We had ordered half a case of his 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s an excellent vintage and almost as wonderful as Sinskey’s pinot noir — the varietal that thrust him into the spotlight of the wine-drinking world.

More than a week had passed, and no sign of the wine. Then I began tracking the wine’s shipment. One failed delivery, then another. They kept coming at odd hours.

Finally, on Friday, my half case of Robert Sinskey Cab arrived. Bottle number one was enjoyed on Saturday night.
