This Pinot Noir from Red Car comes from the Platt Vineyard, which is located 5 miles from the Pacific. Red Car has been sourcing fruit from the 5.2 acre block Calera, 828, 777 clone planted to the Goldridge soils of Platt for the past decade. The 2015 begins with captivating aromatics of red cherries, ripe berries, plums, exotic spices, crushed stones, dried flowers and savory nuances which all soar from the glass. On the palate this is medium-bodied, round and generous with a strong core of red berries and plum accompanied by a lovely acidity which continues through the long, well defined finish. This is outstanding today and has the characteristics to cellar beautifully for years to come.
