Red Car Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Vivid red. A step up in density and power from the Boxcar, with a more pungent quality to its musky dark berry and cherry aromas and flavors. This really coats the mouth, with a slow-building spiciness supplying energy. The finish leaves notes of licorice and bitter cherry skin behind. Deserves a few more years of patience but shows well with some decanter time now. (May/Jun 2010) 585 cases produced.

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
