2014 Hartford Court Jennifer's Vineyard Pinot Noir

93 Points -

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Jennifer’s is from a vineyard in the so-called Petaluma Wind Gap. This is from the Swiss 123 selection that is known as Wadenswil in Oregon. Very fragrant Volnay-like aromatics of strawberries and cherries are gently touched by some toasty oak. In the mouth, more apple notes emerge from this elegant, dark ruby, medium-bodied Pinot Noir, which seems destined to be consumed over the next 4-6 years." - Robert Parker's, The Wine Advocate, October, 2016

$70 QTY

Tasting Notes 

Jennifer’s Pinot Noir is opaque and powerful. It features aromas of boysenberries, cherry cola and lavender followed by flavors of black raspberries, black tea and anise. The 2012 Jennifer’s Pinot Noir is very dense, but with fine tannins and a silky, persistent mouthfeel. It should be worthy of extended cellaring.

Vineyard & Vintage Character 

Named in honor of co-proprietor Jennifer Hartford, this wine is defined by its power, concentration of fruit, structure and an underlying elegance. A wine that is built to age, Jennifer’s proves that not all Pinot Noirs are shy, retiring, delicate souls. Jennifer’s Pinot Noir is sourced from a vineyard in the windy and very cool Sebastopol Hills subregion of the Russian River Valley AVA. Jennifer’s Pinot Noir is planted primarily to Clone 23 and is known for small berries, low yields and a high skin-to-pulp ratio. The dark color, intense black fruit aroma and flavor profile are a testament to the terroir of this site.
