Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir
 
93 Points - "The stunning 2011 Pinot Noir Arrendell Vineyard was cropped at 0.5 tons of fruit per acre. Planted in 1975 with the California Heritage clone of Martini, the fruit from this site often struggles to ripen fully, and is rarely harvested before Halloween. However, the quality makes these 38-year-old vines produce a gorgeously rich wine with blueberry, black raspberry, cherry, incense and a hint of damp forest floor. Complex and medium-bodied with loads of fruit, good acidity and sweet tannin, this is a sultry, exotic, classic Pinot Noir to drink over the next 5-6 years."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, Dec 2013

91-92 Points - "Full ruby. Primary dark berry and cherry pit aromas are complicated by notes of lavender and peppery spices. Silky and appealingly sweet, offering vibrant black raspberry and floral pastille flavors and an exotic touch of star anise. Silky tannins make a late appearance and add shape to a smooth, clinging finish."

91-92 Points - Vivid ruby. A pungent, exotically perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red fruits, cherry pit, anise, vanilla and medicinal herbs. Sappy, penetrating redcurrant and cherry compote flavors gain sweetness with air and show a suave, silky texture. A spicy nuance adds lift to the impressively long, sweet finish, which leaves a juicy raspberry note behind."

91-92 Points - "Dark ruby. Pungent, spice-accented aromas and flavors of bitter cherry, cola and Indian spices. Sappy, penetrating and pure, with a note of star anise gaining power with air. Closes on a smoky note, with impressive cling, chewy tannins and persistent sweetness."

90-91 Points - "Bright ruby. Sexy, high-pitched aromas of black raspberry, star anise, vanilla and smoky minerals. Sweet, seamless and expansive, offering lively red fruit flavors and a touch of candied rose. Open-knit and very fresh, with strong finishing cut and sneaky, fine-grained tannins adding grip."

92-93 Points - "Deep ruby. Cherry-cola and boysenberry aromas are complicated by exotic notes of sandalwood, potpourri and star anise. Dense and creamy in texture, with surprising lift and clarity to its ripe dark fruit and floral pastille flavors. Notes of Asian spices and mocha come up with air and carry through a long, smoky finish, which shows just a hint of tannins. I guessed that there was some whole cluster work going on here but I was wrong."

92 Points - "Bright ruby. Pungent cherry and dark berry aromas are complicated by Indian spice and floral nuances. Broad and chewy in texture, offering sappy blackberry and cherry-cola flavors that provide impressive palate coverage. Gripping tannins build on the long, spicy finish, which leaves notes of bitter cherry and candied lavender behind."

91-92 Points - "Vivid red. A heady, spice-accented bouquet evokes cherry-cola and blackberry, with smoke and floral notes in the background. Dense and chewy in texture, offering potent dark fruit flavors lifted by a touch of white pepper. Shows very good energy on the finish, which leaves sappy dark fruit and cola notes behind."

93 Points - "A gorgeous wine, the 2010 Pinot Noir Seascape Vineyard is full of character. Savory herbs, tobacco and licorice are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. Focused, bright and beautifully articulated, the 2011 is an excellent rendering of Pinot from this coastal site just west of Occidental. This is yet another in a series of hugely impressive wines from Hartford Court."
