Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Floral, Cherry, Raspberry, Orange
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.
There was a lot of high quality fruit this year and this Sonoma Coast Pinot shows that in spades. It's a combination of fruit from Red Car's coolest climate sites. The vintage is naturally low in alcohol with bright acidity. Consistenly outstanding year in and year out.
