Red Car Box Car Pinot Noir 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Boxcar Pinot Noir was sourced from cool sites along the Sonoma Coast, which accounts for its dark fruit and focused structure. Natural yeast fermentation, French oak aging and minimal handling preserve authenticity. Black cherry and potpourri aromas leap from the glass and join earthy undercurrents of graphite and sandalwood on the mid-palate. The finish reveals a dark, earthy side of Pinot Noir with an emphasis on fruit that leaves an impression of sophistication." -Winery

Red Car uses meticulous viticulture and transparent winemaking to craft wines with authentic character and originality. Combining old and new world techniques, we minimize manipulation so the fruit can faithfully express the cool climate personality of the Sonoma Coast. Red Car was founded by Carroll Kemp and Mark Estrin in 2000 with 50 cases of Syrah from a single ton of grapes. Besides an enthusiasm for wine, they also shared a Hollywood background – Carroll as producer, Mark as screenwriter. Their intent was simple: source great grapes, make great wine and market it in an inventive, original way. The winery name is a tribute to the electric trolley cars that ran throughout Los Angeles from the late 19th century through the early 1960’s. These "red cars" provided transportation in a romanticized time and place. We strive to make wines that are similarly memorable and transportive. Read less

Vivid red. Fresh red fruit and rose scents show good energy and a bright, spicy quality. Taut and refreshingly brisk, with good lift and gentle sweetness to its strawberry and raspberry flavors. Finishes with good cut and length, leaving a peppery... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2010 Red Car Boxcar Pinot 750ml
