2013 Russian River Pinot Noir, Hartford Court

A member of Jackson Family Wines, Hartford Court is an award-winning producer of appellation-designate and single-vineyard Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and old vine Zinfandel from low-yielding vineyards in prime regions throughout Sonoma County.

This is a new bottling, made from a blend of fruit from their Green Valley, Sebastopol Hill, and Laguna Ridge estate vineyards in the Russian River Valley. It shows off the character of the vintage while highlighting the unique characteristics each site has to offer. The wine leads with aromas and flavors of tangy black cherry, red berry, and scents of forest floor. It has a focused midpalate expression with a silken texture and mineral undertones, and lingering spice on the finish. A beautifully-wrought Pinot Noir that you don't have to wait to enjoy.
