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."

92 Points - "The 2010 Pinot Noir Far Coast Vineyard stands out for its deep, resonant personality…there is no shortage of depth and nuance in the glass. Sweet oral and spice notes add lift to the Finish."

"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."

92-93 Points - "Bright ruby-red. Candied red fruits and incense on the pungent, intensely perfumed nose. Spicy and incisive, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that pick up a suave floral nuance with aeration. Showsa distinct spiciness on the finish, which clings with outstanding tenacity and persistence. This taut, focused wine has the structure and balance to age."

92-93 Points - "Ruby-red. Black raspberry, incense, rose oil and allspice on the intensely perfumed nose, with a sneaky note of cola gaining strength with air. The palate offers concentrated flavors of sappy red and dark berry flavors joined by a hint of bitter cherry on the back half; showing a lot of fruit today. Finishes with superb energy and lingering spiciness." - Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May 2012

"The 2012 Pinot Noir I tasted was the outstanding 2012 Pinot Noir Lands Edge Vineyard, a Sonoma Coast site situated only five miles from the Pacific Ocean. Bottled early, this wine, which only spent 10 months in the barrel, exhibits lots of black fruits along with hints of forest floor, compost, fresh mushroom-like notes intermixed with spring flowers. This rich complex Pinot Noir should drink well for 4 - 5 years."

91-92 Points - "Vivid red. A heady, spice-accented bouquet evokes cherry-cola and blackberry, with smoke and oral 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."

92-93 Points - This alluring and hedonistic wine has amazing extract and purity of fruit focus. Vibrant fruit aromas of black cherry, blueberry and violets harmonize with subtle cinnamon stick notes. The captivating aromas lead into equally vibrant flavors of berries and allspice in this concentrated and elegant Pinot Noir.
