Our Land’s Edge Pinot Noir is sourced from two Estate owned Vineyards: our Far Coast Vineyard (just south of the town of Annapolis) and our Estate owned Seascape Vineyard (west of the town of Occidental). The name Land’s Edge is derived from the fact that the Vineyards are located high on the Sonoma Coastal Ridges that run along the Sonoma Coast’s land’s edge and the Pacific Ocean. Some call this part of the Sonoma Coast AVA the “True Sonoma Coast.” We also make single vineyard designated wines from each of the Far Coast and Seascape Vineyards. The Far Coast Vineyard is the predominant component of Land’s Edge – typically making up 90% or more of the blend. We find that the Far Coast part of the blend brings Mocha notes to the nose, and a deep black cherry profile while the Seascape Vineyard part of the blend adds savory notes along with hints of salinity to the Land’s Edge Vineyards cuvee.
Wines From This Vineyard
"One of the brilliant efforts from Hartford Court is the 2015 Pinot Noir Land's Edge Vineyards. From a site located only four miles from the Pacific Ocean, this wine has a saturated ruby/purple color and a beautiful concentration of blueberry, black raspberry and black cherry, some crushed rock and spring flowers. The terrific fruit on the attack and mid-palate, the full-bodied finish and intensity are all promising in this brilliant effort. Drink it over the next decade" - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2016
