Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Rickshaw Pinot Noir possesses kirsch and black cherry notes, cola and baking spices from the kiss of French oak it sees. A persistent core of sweet fruit extract balanced with bright acidity. Endlessly energetic, this Pinot is the ultimate versatile wine, working well for an aperitif to pairing with king salmon or skirt steak with chimichurri.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
This wine is the real deal. The 2016 Rickshaw Pinot Noir shows that it is possible to find an excellent example of this grape variety at an affordable price. This wine offers beautiful flavor purity—red fruit, dried leaves, and wild herbs. Pair it with pan-seared wild salmon. (Tasted: January 19, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Part of the Banshee family of wines.

Dedicated to the relentless pursuit of wines with elegance, purity, and sophistication at prices that rarely reflect these characteristics. We are equally dedicated to helping carry our fellow man, thus the name.

Rickshaw is sourced across California from sustainable vineyards, enabling us to source from diverse appellations and craft the highest quality wine at the price possible. The Chardonnay hails from cooler climate areas, but a touch of oak gives it a rich texture which brings the zippy acidity into natural balance. Pinot Noir is a classic expression of the grape, also hailing from cooler climates with that California kiss of juicy fruit. And finally, the Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a beefier texture with plush weight and full throttle flavors.

Internationally recognized for gorgeous, pure fruit combined with great elegance, California Pinot noir thrives among the state’s cooler, coastal zones. Characterized by eclectic flavors and aromas of strawberry, black cherry, plum and potpourri with notes of forest floor, mushroom or black tea, the best California Pinot noir boast a supple texture and good acidity, giving them the ability to improve with age.

Credited with the beginning of Pinot noir’s glory in California, two growers, Joe Rochioli and Joseph Swan in the late 1960s independently planted Pinot noir vineyards in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Today Sonoma County remains the leading producer of Pinot noir in the state, and Pinot noir is the leading red grape in the county, achieving its highest potential, in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.

Other coastal appellations where Pinot noir flourishes include Carneros, Anderson Valley and most of the Central Coast.
