Red Car Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Heaven & Earth la Bohème 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

97WS. `Delivers a tight focused beam of rich pure concentrated blackberry and wild berry fruit thats full-bodied complex and expansive on the finish where this keeps unlocking doors of subtle flavors. Drink now through 2014.` (June 3 2009) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: `Medium red. Smoky redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by anise and dried rose. The expressive palate offers dried cherry and bitter chocolate flavors with firm tannins adding support. The focused finish repeats the cherry note and lingers with refreshingly bitter persistence. Give this some air if you lack the patience to age it for a few years.` (May/June '09).

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
