2015 Hartford Court Marin Pinot Noir

94 POINTS

Marin County lies to the north of San Francisco, just across the Golden Gate Bridge and goes up to Bodega Bay. This is a cool, foggy region and the 2015 Pinot Noir Marin County was destemmed and spent 16 months in 32% new French oak. Cranberries, white cherries, spice, bay leaf, and sassafras notes all flow to a beautifully balanced, medium-bodied Pinot Noir that shines for its complexity and nuance. It’s one of the fine, ethereal wines in the lineup, yet doesn’t lack for intensity or depth. It’s going to keep for 10-12 years. - Jeb Dunnuck, June 2018

Tasting Notes 

"Pure aromas of red cherries, berries, leather and Asian spice notes are supported by bright flavors of cherry cola, pomegranate and an earthy mid palate.  Velvety, fine-grained tannins complement a long finish with subtle lavender and wild strawberry nuances.

Vineyard & Vintage Character 

2015 was a low-yielding season in the cool climate of Marin County, which allowed beautiful ripening and flavor development.  This wine is sourced from a small, dry-farmed vineyard on rolling hills in an area of Marin that has been home to cattle and dairies for the last century. Today there are small vineyard sites scattered across Marin that are producing very interesting and distinct fruit.
