Red Car Trolley Pinot Noir 2010


SKU 09465


Our Trolley Pinot Noir is always more an expression of a vintage than a particular vineyard, and this 2010 version is no exception. The 2010 vintage was the coldest on record in the Sonoma Coast, too cold for some later ripening varietals but ideal for Pinot Noir, which achieves its greatest heights in cool years. With focused fruit balanced by ephemeral earthy undertones, this wine lives up to the extraordinary potential of this unusual vintage.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Pinot Noir Trolley is a fabulous wine. It boasts considerable energy and focus from start to finish. Dark red cherries, mint, minerals and spices are some of the many nuances that flow from this beautifully delineated wine. Saline notes frame the long, nuanced finish. I can hardly wait to taste the single-vineyard Pinots. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
