2015 Hartford Court Land's Edge Vineyard Pinot Noir

96 Points -

"This is comprised of fruit from two coastal sites, but it does not hold back on flavor or complexity. A juicy entry of spicy red and blue fruit is surrounded by moderate structure and an imprint of rose petal.  Lasting in intensity and acidity, it's dotted in citrus and polished tannins" - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, July 2018

$50 QTY

Tasting Notes 

The nose leads with black cherry and black raspberry, balanced with aromas of crushed quartz and dried rose petal. The layered flavors of dark berries, licorice and dried flowers lead to a mid-palate with elegant and polished texture. The wine ends with a lingering mocha and mineral finish.

Vineyard & Vintage Character 

Land’s Edge Pinot Noir is sourced from vineyards located at the ‘Land’s Edge’ of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The vineyards are driven by a maritime influence, producing a small but concentrated crop of Pinot Noir that is harvested in late September through mid-October. The foggy coastal climate preserves natural acidity in the grapes and helps delineate the purity of fruit flavors and expression of the unique coastal terroir in this wine. Balanced acidity, layers of complexity and firm tannins will allow for long and graceful aging of Land’s Edge Vineyards Pinot Noir.
