Item Number: 20170
Not Vintage Specific
Item Number: 20170
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 new (10%), once used (15%), and neutral (75%) French Oak barrels. As always, pure Pinot flavor and exquisite balance are the goals with this wine.
The 2014 Rickshaw Pinot Noir balances the ethereal nature of the grape with depth that is capable in warm California vintages. It flashes a whole range of berry flavors from wild blackberry to blueberry to Rainier cherry. This blend of fruit rides atop notes of wet earth, black tea and warm Indian spice notes. The finish is bright and long lasting.

Rickshaw is the synthesis to two powerful ideals: that one should be able to
have a great bottle of California wine at a reasonable price and that those of us
fortunate to enjoy said wine each night should help out our fellow man.
Achieving the first part of the mission is a challenge we embrace. We
constantly scour California for good, honest sources of wine. Then we spend
months tinkering with different blends until we have something that really
shines. Our Pinot Noir, for example, includes parcels from our partners in
Anderson Valley, Russian River, and the Santa Lucia Highlands. Many of these
parcels regularly go into wines that cost more than $40 a bottle. By blending
we are able to deliver them at a much friendlier price.
The second part of the mission comes naturally, by having our priorities in the
right place. Rickshaw is committed to donating 5 percent of the gross profit
from each bottle to food-related charities in the states where it is sold. In
addition we are inviting our distributors, restaurant, and retail partners to
participate in our fund raising efforts. Whether it is a donation match, hosting
a Rickshaw event or throwing their marketing efforts behind the cause,
partners all over the United States are getting involved in
the Rickshaw mission
Very nice Pinot noir
