Rickshaw Pinot Noir is sourced from a variety of coastal cool–climate vineyards with a large percentage coming from the Sonoma Coast and the rest from Santa Barbara, Anderson Valley, and Monterey. The wine is fermented in small open top vessels and aged in a combination of new (10%), once used (15%), and neutral (75%) French Oak barrels. As always, pure Pinot flavor and exquisite balance are the goals with this wine.
The 2014 Rickshaw Pinot Noir balances the ethereal nature of the grape with depth that is capable in warm California vintages. It flashes a whole range of berry flavors from wild blackberry to blueberry to Rainier cherry. This blend of fruit rides atop notes of wet earth, black tea, and warm Indian spice notes. The finish is bright and long lasting. (from the vintner)
