We source this RICKSHAW Pinot from a variety of coastal cool-climate vineyards with a large percentage coming from the Sonoma Coast. The wine is fermented in small open top vessels and aged in a combination of stainless steel and high end French Oak barrels. As always, pure Pinot flavor and exquisite balance are the goals with this wine.
The 2018 RICKSHAW Pinot Noir possesses kirsch and black cherry notes, cola and baking spices from the kiss of French oak it sees. A persistent core of sweet fruit extract balanced with bright acidity. Endlessly energetic, this Pinot is the ultimate versatile wine, working well for an aperitif to pairing with king salmon or skirt steak with chimichurri. -Winemaker's Notes
