The 2019 Pinot Noir Estate is a powerful wine from Red Car's vineyard in Fort-Ross Seaview. Black cherry sage mint lavender bay leaf and cloves add to an impression of gravitas. This is an especially deep virile style but there is plenty of the elegance that defines these wines. It's a terrific expression of Fort-Ross Seaview. - By Antonio Galloni on January 2022 This is a very attractive set of 2019s from Red Car. I reported on the Chardonnays last year so I will focus on the reds here. One of the challenges on the West Sonoma Coast is balancing fruit expression with the natural savoriness that comes so easily here and avoiding dominating vegetal qualities. Winemaker Earl Scheer has done a terrific job on achieving just that. The Pinots are gracious but less severe than in some previous years. There are three Syrahs all from the estate vineyard which results in three bottlings that are strong but also somewhat similar in voice. Cabernet Sauvignon is not often seen on the coast but Red Car does a terrific job with their wine from Mohrhardt.
