2012 Doc’s Ranch Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir
ELEV. 900 FT. / PACIFIC OCEAN 4.7 MI.
Sonoma Coast

Vineyard

This organically farmed micro-vineyard of just 1.3 acres is nestled among coastal redwoods west of the hamlet of Occidental. Planted in 2001 exclusively to the aromatic Swan clone, it is one of our coldest vineyards with very low yields and extremely limited production. 2012 is the first vintage we have been able to produce more than a barrel of this wine and we invite our mailing list members to take advantage of this exclusive opportunity to add this seductively aromatic, lively and feminine Pinot Noir to their collection.

Taste

Cherry blossoms, cranberries, tangerine zest

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.
