Hartford Court Pinot Noir Russian River 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is elegant and complex with effusive black cherry up-front and underlying notes of violet, pain grille, cumin and faint notions of freshly plowed earth. Flavors in the mouth are berry, cherry, sweet dried cranberries, clove and allspice. Edited from whwc.com

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

Dense plum red at the core with a dark pink/red rim. Dense fruit-driven wine replete with aromas of wild blackberry, cherry, and anise. Dark, brooding fruit indicates its Russian River pedigree, with hints of well-integrated oak. The velvety texture ... Alex Lallos. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2010 Hartford Court Pinot Noir Russian River 750ml

The wine's nose is elegant and complex with effusive black cherry up-front and underlying notes of violet, pain grille, cumin and faint notions of freshly plowed earth. Flavors in the mouth are berry, cherry, sweet dried cranberries, clove and allspice. Texturally, the wine is silky with nice acidity and a minerality that drive the wine's finish.
