2012 Heaven & Earth Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir
ELEV. 650 FT. / PACIFIC OCEAN 8 MI.
Sonoma Coast

Vineyard

The picture perfect growing conditions in 2012 allowed us to produce a wine worthy of its highly lauded predecessors. The Bohemian Station Vineyard is a 4.5 acre site that was planted to our exact specifications in 2004 using the Calera, Pommard and 828 clones. It lies on a picturesque south facing hillside nestled into a quaint valley just east of the Bohemian Highway near the charming town of Occidental. It epitomizes the concept of “cool sunshine” and consistently offers a perfect balance between power and acidity. In the decade we have been producing this wine, it has become an important cornerstone of our Pinot Noir program and one of the most sought after by our private clients.

Philosophy

Red Car is focused on growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah in a network of cold-climate vineyards on the edge of the Pacific in the West Sonoma Coast. We are hands-on farmers, part of a small cadre of wineries in our region who are fortunate to grow a large majority of our own fruit. For several years now we have worked hard to go beyond sustainability and have integrated the concepts and principles of organic, biodynamic and permaculture systems into our farming as we search for nature’s ideal pathways. Our wines are made in small lots utilizing minimalist intervention techniques like native yeast fermentation, gravity flow, and natural acid.
