Hartford Court Arrendell Pinot Noir
96 Points

What is usually their finest Pinot Noir hails from Hartford’s oldest vines, planted with the Martini clone in 1975. The 2014 Pinot Noir Arrendell Vineyard is often not picked until after Halloween, as it is one of the coldest vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Its spicy, complex notes of allspice, sassafras, sweet black cherries and Asian plum sauce are exotic, fragrant and intense.  The superb fragrance is matched by an exotic, silky, fleshy wine with dark berries (especially ripe raspberries and black cherries), soft tannins, and full body. This is a head-turning “wow” Pinot Noir to drink over the next decade. - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate,  October 2016

The 2014 Pinot Noir Muldune Trail comes from a vineyard at the southern end of the Anderson Valley planted at an elevation of 1,600 feet.  Again unfined and unfiltered, this has the dense ruby/plum color that is more saturated than its two predessors and notes of fresh herbs intermixed with wet gravel, blueberry, raspberry and pomegranate.  It is a medium-bodied, long, rich and made from Dijon clones 115 and 777.  This is a broad, savory, impressive Pinot Noir to drive over the next decade.  - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2016

Another saturated ruby/purple wine is the 2014 Pinot Noir Far Coast Vineyard. This comes from a mountain ridge north of Fort Ross at a 1,000-foot elevation. Dense ruby purple, with notes of sassafras, forest floor, red and black cherries, raspberry and underbrush, the wine exhibits medium to full body and terrific texture and length. This is another 10-year Pinot Noir, but should be drinkable during that entire window of opportunity. -  Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2016

"The 2013 Pinot Noir MacLean’s Block comes from a vineyard east of the town of Occidental and saw 36% new French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. This is from Dijon clone 667 and 777 from a relatively high-elevation site that needs plenty of time to ripen fully. About 30% whole clusters were used in this wine, which is dense ruby/purple with loads of spice, damp earth, forest floor and mushrooms as well as raspberry and black cherry fruit. It should drink well for up to a decade."  - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2015

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Fog Dance Vineyard comes from Dijon clones 115,667 and 777 grown in a another cold, windy area in the Green Valley, south of the old hippie town of Forestville.  Soft, spicy, tart red cherries in addition to some plum, Asian spice, and forest floor are all present in this luscious, sexy, complex wine that offers up loads of fragrance, medium to full body and a heady finish.  Drink it over the next 7-10 years." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2016

"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

2014 Hartford Court Land's Edge Vineyard Pinot Noir
92 Points

"The only 2014 tasted was the early-bottled 2014 Pinot Noir Land’s Edge Vineyards, which comes from a vineyard four miles from the Pacific Ocean. Aged in 32% new French oak, the wine displays raspberry and blueberry fruit, damp earth, fresh porcini mushrooms and plenty of minerality. This is a juicy, tightly knit, but concentrated and promising Pinot Noir that has that forward fruit of this vintage well displayed." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2015

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Marin emerges from that wealthy county on the western side of the Golden Gate Bridge, where few
vineyards are located. Aged 17 months in 37% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered, this comes from Dijon clone 828 and offers up the classic Burgundian notes of forest floor, pomegranate, plum, and smoky black cherries and strawberries. A Côte de Nuits-like Pinot Noir that is medium-bodied, but beautifully fruited and savory, it should be drunk it over the next 7-8 years." - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, October 2016

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Velvet Sisters emanates from another Anderson Valley site and is sourced from four separate clones - Dijon clones 115, 666, 777 and the Pommard selection. This wine displays notes of baked apple skins, pomegranate, black cherry and a hint of raspberry, with some floral notes as well as forest floor.  It is rich, ripe, medium to full-bodied, and best drunk over the next 5-7 years." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2016

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Hailey's Block is one of the more exuberant, racy wines in the Hartford range. Succulent dark cherry, plum, spice, menthol, licorice and cloves flesh out in a powerful, inviting wine. The 2014 is bold, juicy and forward, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2016

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Seascape Vineyard is round, polished and seductive, with lovely mid-palate pliancy and plenty of generosity. Spice, new leather and menthol wrap around the inviting finish. Rose petal, savory herbs and mint add the closing layers of nuance."  - Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2016

"True to its Carneros roots, the 2014 Sevens Bench Pinot Noir carries the hallmark of the region – fruit intensity balanced by an earthy and savory side. The aromas open with black cherry and boysenberry and lead into subtle mushroom and spice characters. The flavors are reminiscent of black cherry and Asian spice, with a subtle tea and spice component driven by a small amount of whole-cluster fermentation. The wine finishes with a juiciness and elegant tannins in the finish." - Jeff Stewart, Winemaker

"The 2014 Warrior Princess Pinot Noir is our first release from the Willamette Valley. The wine has a deep ruby hue with complex aromas of Chinese five spice, sandalwood and dried rose petal; the framework of the wine’s aromatic profile is dark blueberry and blackberry." - Jeff Stewart, Winemaker
