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.

Medium intensity with dark plum hue. The nose is very inviting and redolent of a cool-climate pinot with brightly scented aromas of violet fleshy wild blackcurrant and ripe raspberry fruit and sweet cherry cola surrounded by a subtle peppery edge. Soft and approachable on the palate with a light oak-barrel spice accent. Despite its relatively high alcohol this wine is composed and balanced thanks to its mouthwatering fresh cherry fruit core and lively acidity which is caressed by its delicate but persistent tannins. This tri-regional Russian River pinot blend is a delicious value quaffer to enjoy now. Justin Wong.
