Rickshaw Pinot Noir 2016 750ml

As difficult as it is to produce excellent Pinot Noir, it is even more difficult to do so at a fine value. In their development of the Banshee label, the winemakers gained a stable of quality sources for Pinot fruit from the finest AVAs in California, and Rickshaw was born out of this bounty. The largest share of fruit is sourced from the Sonoma Coast, followed by Anderson Valley and the Central Coast. The appeal of the wine is driven by its balance of fruit and earth tones, so just 10% of the wine sees new oak (the remainder being once-used or neutral barrels). For aromatic appeal and complexity, there is some stem inclusion in the fermentation. The Rickshaw Pinot leaps out of the glass with bright notes of dried cherry and pine. It is followed by a truly silky palate of wild strawberry, red plum and pomegranate. The wine is bolstered with its usual energetic spine and a slightly salty finish."
