Jennifer’s Vineyard is named after co-proprietor Jennifer Hartford. The Jennifer’s Chardonnay Vineyard is from a block in an estate owned vineyard located in the Sebastopol sub-region of the Russian River Valley AVA. This region and vineyard are known for their cool climate, goldridge soils and windy conditions on the edge of the Petaluma Wind Gap.
Wines From This Vineyard
"The 2013 Pinot Noir Jennifer’s Marshall Vineyard comes from a vineyard south of Sebastopol that sits right in the windy Petaluma Gap. Foresty, woodsy aromas intermingled with raspberry, blueberry and black cherry fruit jump from the glass of this wine, which is medium to full-bodied and shows terrific purity, texture and length. It is still tightly knit, as one might expect. Another 6-12 months of bottle age is probably suggested, and the wine should evolve easily for a decade or more."
—Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, December 2014
"Jennifer's Pineapple, mint, butter, orange blossom and wild flowers are some of the signatures in the 2013 Jennifer's Chardonnay. This silky, perfumed Chardonnay should drink well for a number of years. The Jennifer's is one of the more overt, racy wines in this range, with flavors that tend towards the more tropical end of the spectrum, which is quite unusual considering the cool micro-climate in this part of the Petaluma Gap."
