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

With juicy blackberries and ripe plum on the palate, and only 375 cases produced, this wine is a must have. The Red Car Co. has set out to make rich, dramatic wines and they have certainly succeeded with the Amour Fou.

Impressive with its core of rich plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit that's plush and concentrated. Dark-colored, with lots of complexity and finesse, the finish keeps pumping out rich flavors with plenty of tannins to merit short-term cellaring.... Wine Spectator.
