2015 Hartford Court Hailey's Block Vineyard Pinot Noir

95+ Points -

"From the cooler Green Valley region of the Russian River, the 2015 Pinot Noir Hailey’s Block was completely destemmed and spent 16 months in 27% new French oak. Hailey's Block is a block within the Arrendell Vineyard, named after Don and Jennifer Hartford's daughter. It’s another beautifully Burgundian wine from this estate that offers crisp black cherry, crushed rock, charcoal, and wood smoke aromas and flavors. It’s fresh, focused, and youthful, with fine tannin and high yet integrated acidity. Give it a year or three and it will keep for a decade or more." - Jeb Dunnuck, June 2018

$70 QTY

Tasting Notes 

Red and black cherries, wild strawberry, clove and floral aromas accent the wine and are followed by bright red fruits, candied cherry notes and subtle mushroom flavors that carry through on the palate. Full bodied, silky tannins complete the savory finish.

Vineyard & Vintage Character 

Hailey’s Block is located within the renowned Arrendell Vineyard and is named a¬fter Don and Jennifer Hartford’s daughter, Hailey. The block was planted in 1996 to Dijon selections 114 and 777 of Pinot Noir when Hailey was just six years old. Over the years, we have watched both Hailey and her namesake Pinot Noir mature into personalities of great strength, beauty and charm. 

Hailey’s Block sits in arguably the coldest spot in the Green Valley sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley AVA. The cold meso-climate that results from cool air settling in this low-lying vineyard preserves natural acidity in the grapes and helps preserve the pure expression of the unique terroir in this beautiful release.
