"From a block within the Arrendell Vineyard, this is an earthy, hearty, and generously ripe wine, smooth and complex with underlying brightness. Dense layers of black cherry and berry meet a savory edginess of forest floor and black tea, showcasing the beauty and brawn of the variety." Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, June/July 2021
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.
