2014 Mohrhardt Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
The Mohrhardt Ridge Vineyard expresses Cabernet Sauvignon grown on a mountaintop and tamed by the full force of the cold Pacific Ocean. The inaugural vintage of Red Car Cabernet Sauvignon shows the complexity, balance and elegance of this Fort Ross – Seaview hilltop site.

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.
