Don Hartford and winemaker Jeff Stewart have produced a sensational lineup of wines in 2015 (and I suspect 2016 as well). This is a smaller yielding year, and while quantities are tiny, the wines are concentrated, rich, and flamboyant while also staying elegant and seamless. These are world-class Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that readers need to seek out!
Hartford Court opts to bottle their Zinfandel releases under the straight “Hartford” label. Their classic Highwire Vineyard Zinfandel is up there with some of the greatest examples of the variety, from anywhere!
