Hartford Court Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Hartford Court Land's Edge Vineyards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2006 : WINEMAKER NOTES: This wine has lovely aromas of black cherry, dried flowers and tobacco followed by flavors of black cherry, blackberry, spicecake and violet. Long and spicy, this is a complex wine that would be a perfect accompaniment to roast duck or other dark poultry. HARTFORD COURT LAND'S EDGE VINEYARDS SONOMA COAST PINOT NOIR 2006

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

Good initially, but the steak we had to accompany it seemed to overwhelm it. Slightly alcoholic, but not overly excessive. Eat with fish, chicken or pork.

Wine Tasting NotesComplex aromas of ripe cherries, violets and cedar are followed by flavors of perfectly ripe, firm black cherries, mixed red and black berries. Allspice and coffee notes complement a long, multi-faceted finish in this exciting, new Hartford Court Pinot Noir.
