Hartford Court Russian River Valley Fog Dance Vineyard Pinot Noir Qty.available-6 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Pure aromas of Queen Anne cherries, rose petals and cinnamon are supported by flavors of cranberries, red cherries and allspice. Velvety, fine grained tannins complement a long and sophisticated finish reminiscent of black tea in this new Green Valley Pinot Noir.

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

Lots of cherry flavors and silky feel. A bit of tannin for Pinot ... could use some time.

I serve this as the only pinot noir at my hotel bar. Its a good Pinot for those who want take a slow transition from bolder wines such as merlots and cabs. to more elegant and fruity red wines like the pinot noir. Its a tasteful wine, bold and tanic at first but slows its way into fruity and smooth flavors. Starts like a Cab., ends like a pinot!

Complex crushed wild blackberry and raspberry fruit has a nice mineral and pebble edge, and this gains momentum and depth on the finish, holding its fresh fruit character while remaining elegant and stylish. Drink now through 2012. 1,000 cases made. - JL
