Winemaker's Notes:

#58 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The 2007 Trolley Pinot Noir is a focused and pure Sonoma Coast gem. Rich yet balanced, it layers the mouth with savory black cherry cobbler, sassafras and forest morels. The aroma offers heady notes of wild sage and dew covered California cedar. Authenticity in a bottle.

My Notes:

About Red Car Wine Company:

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.
