High Personality Wines Making delicious wines of high personality is directly related to the difficult locations of our vineyard sources, the limited production of our bottlings and the varietals we use. "Character through adversity" is an expression that we believe applies to people and grapevines and surviving adversity builds character, and personality, in both. Single-Vineyard and Limited Bottlings Small and low-yielding vineyards deliver meager amounts of expressive and personality-rich wine. Our single-vineyard Hartford Court Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays total as few as 93 cases up to about 800 cases. Likewise, our Hartford Old-Vine Zinfandels are produced in small quantities. Pinot Noir We love Pinot Noir and in many years make about eight of them with fruit from the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast, Green Valley, Carneros and Anderson Valley appellations. We feel that Pinot Noir makes the most seductive red wine, notable for its supple, silky texture. Pinot Noir is also known for expressing vineyard site characteristics in a transparent manner. Chardonnay Cool climate Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley Chardonnay vineyards are singularly expressive. Those that are planted with multiple clones, specially matched to their sites, also reflect the distinctive terroir in these high-risk, high-reward locations. Old-Vine Zinfandel Our 80-100 year old Zinfandel vineyards are irreplaceable treasures - and we source our vineyard designated Russian River Valley Zinfandels (150-500 cases) from some of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in California. The complexity and depth of flavors from these vineyards produce the most consistently bold and unctuous Zinfandels found anywhere. Read less

External Reviews for Hartford Court Chardonnay "Four Hearts"

Vintage: 2012 02/15/2015

From the Laguna Ridge sub-region in the Russian River, the 2012 Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyard comes from the famous Goldridge soils that dominate the best hillside vineyards of this area. Very Corton-Charlemagne-like with lots of wet stone, white currant, quince and caramelized citrus characteristics, this full-bodied white was aged in 38% new oak and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. It came in at 14.5% natural alcohol. The wine possesses terrific acidity, and should age easily for 5–7 years.

Rich and creamy, without the weight, delivering ripe pear, apple, light toasty oak and honeydew melon notes. Drink now.

The 2012 Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyards comes across as a bit dense and compact at this stage, but there is plenty of power lurking in the background. Apricot, tangerine and Chamomile notes are all highly expressive here. These old vines, planted in 1975 (old by California standards) is felt in the wine’s depth and resonance.
