Red Car Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Amour Fou Chapter One 2002

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Impressive with its core of rich plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit that's plush and concentrated.

A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2002 Red Car Pinot Noir Amour Fou 750ml

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
