Tasting Notes

Rickshaw is easily one of our best sellers in economy labels. The staff at K&L knows that if someone comes in wanting a true-to-California styled wine that’s of high quality and affordable, just hand them the latest bottling of Rickshaw whether it is their Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon or this Pinot Noir, made by the good folks at Banshee Wines, who craft elegant, food-friendly coastal Pinot and Chardonnay. Via the Rickshaw bottling, Banshee can offer a phenomenal value, thanks to relationships they've built with growers over the years from the finest AVAs in California. 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 juice 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 wine has a powerful streak of red cherry fruit, subtle spice and dried herb aromas. It is lively and fresh with great balance and firm tannins. A great example of an affordable, delicious California Pinot Noir. You can enjoy this wine on its own, or with grilled meats, pizza or pasta dishes.

    For all those who are looking for a classic, elegant Pinot Noir that won't break the bank, Rickshaw is your pick. This wine has an extremely supple and smooth mouthfeel of black cherry. The rich red fruit and ample acidity on the finish make this the perfect wine to sip alone and to have with dinner.
