Variety: Pinot Noir
What started in 2000 as a small yet ambitious project of making 50 barrels of Syrah using a spare bedroom has turned into a great mecca of winemaking. Red Car’s wines are inspired by the cooler climates of the Northern Rhone with depth and concentration. The wines are site-specific with a huge emphasis on sustainability. Red Car is fortunate enough to farm a substantial amount of their own fruit. Their practices are honest ones, focusing on low-intervention with organic farming and native yeast fermentation.
Red Car’s benchmark wine has become this estate vineyard making for a Pinot Noir with all necessary ingredients in a great wine: balance, energy, elegance, and intensity. The estate vineyard is located in the Fort Ross - Seaview appellation in Sonoma Coast. Cool sunshine and fogs from the coast make this a shining example of what cool climate Pinot Noir should be. Clocking in at just over 13%, this is aged in barrel for 15 months. 600 cases were made.
