Rickshaw 2021 Pinot Noir Bottle Shot

2021 RICKSHAW Pinot Noir

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.

TASTING NOTES | During the season of 2021, California overall received almost no rain. The summer had mild temperatures which allowed for the fruit to hang a bit longer than usual. All of the vineyards and fruit load were managed according to how much water was available for that specific vineyard. There were a few hot spells early in the fall which quickened ripening and accelerated harvest season.

The 2021 RICKSHAW Pinot Noir is endlessly energetic. Bright red-fruit aromas of raspberries, strawberries, and Rainier cherries are complimented with notes of vanilla, cedar, and nutmeg. Toasted oak, light fruit, and spice flavors are persistent on the palate and met with elegant, rich medium-textured tannins and a long, silky finish.
