We are thrilled to announce our inaugural vintage of cool-climate, single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Red Car’s last decade has been dedicated to reviving classic, old world winemaking styles and techniques and applying them to our true coastal region of the West Sonoma Coast. This wine is a perfect example of unique voices we have uncovered along the way. The Mohrhardt Ridge Vineyard is located in the Fort Ross – Seaview AVA, a region known primarily for its incredible Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards. It is perched high on a ridge a couple of miles inland from our Estate Vineyard, which provides just enough additional warmth to ripen Cabernet Sauvignon. We practically stumbled upon this small, four-acre vineyard that was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon over 30 years ago. Discovering Cabernet vines in the reigning region for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to embrace the true coastal history of the Médoc by farming the vineyard and making wine from this little gem.
