We’ve been selling Red Car for a long time, even through the years as a “cult” wine when it was nearly impossible to get. This 2016 is delicious and ready for all your summery sippin’! It drinks more like a Premier Cru Meursault than it does Sonoma Coast chardonnay --- seriously! A testament to the winemaking and the quality of the vineyards that make up the blend, the 2016 happens to be a huge portion of Ritchie! It's 100% Old Wente clone (the most prized clone for chardonnay) from stellar sites deep in western Sonoma Coast.

4 bottles under $100 DELIVERED! Amazing! While it lasts…

About the Producer

Red Car was founded in 2000 when Mark Estrin, Carroll Kemp and Richard Crowell produced 50 cases of wine from a single ton of syrah grapes in a Culver City garage. In a nod to their Los Angeles roots, the new venture was named Red Car after the trolley line that ferried riders across the region for the first half of the twentieth century. In 2004, they purchased 125 acres of land and began developing vineyards in the wild coastal ridges north of Sonoma County's Bodega Bay, a region now known as the Fort Ross-Seaview AVA. This rugged terrain's coastal influence, where the Pacific fog filters in daily through giant redwoods until warm sunshine sends it back out to the sea, provides perfect growing conditions for their hallmark style: perfumed aromatics, bright fruit, crisp texture and uplifting acidity.

90 Wine Enthusiast -
An oaky nose of caramel and brioche gives way to a lighter, brighter midpalate of high-toned acidity and fresh flavors of lemon and tangerine. The ripeness is balanced and well integrated with the tannin and oak.
