"Defined tones of red fruit and tangerine, alongside bright acidity, give this wine undeniable lift and life. It is sourced from a cool climate block within the Arrendell Vineyard. Herbal in thyme and celery seed, it delights the midpalate with length and energy, expanding on the earthy theme with lasting freshness and specks of white pepper and cardamom." - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, July 2020
Wines From This Vineyard
Hailey's Block Pinot Noir is located within the prestigious Arrendell Vineyard and is named after founders Don & Jenny Hartford's daughter Hailey. The block was planted over 20 years ago to Dijon clones 114 and 777 at a time when Hailey was just six years old. Over time, we have watched both Hailey and her namesake Pinot Noir mature into personalities of great strength, beauty and charm.
Arrendell Vineyard and 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 the low-lying vineyard preserves natural acidity in the grapes and helps preserve the purity and expression of the unique terroir in this beautiful Pinot Noir.
