Wines From This Vineyard

2021 Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Pinot Noir

94 Points

"The 2021 Pinot Noir Sevens Bench Vineyard is a rich ruby hue with a bit of purple tinge and delivers savory, ripe aromas of black cherry, iron-rich earth, and cracked pepper. Full-bodied, with ripe mixed blackberry and black raspberry fruit up front, sweet tannins and a hint of forest floor emerge, and it’s ripe and spicy on the palate, with a long, juicy finish.

2020 Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Chardonnay

True to its Carneros roots, the 2020 Sevens Bench Chardonnay carries the hallmark of the region – fruit intensity balanced by good acidity. The aromas are driven by classic lemon drop, Meyer lemon and lemongrass. That fruit style follows in the flavors, with the citrus focus carrying through with candied lemon drop balanced by the mineral and flint characteristics inherent to the region and the clonal selections. Barrel fermentation notes in the background add even more complexity to this elegant wine. —Jeff Stewart & Tiaan Lordan, Winemakers

2018 Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Chardonnay

95 Points

"I always seem to find a tropical slant in Chardonnay from Carneros, and the 2018 Chardonnay Sevens Bench Vineyard has it in spades, with ample pineapple, honeyed peach, pear, and toasted spice-like aromas and flavors. This is another balanced, rich, medium to full-bodied Chardonnay from this estate that's loaded with character. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years. " - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com, July 2021

Intensive farming and low yields are the foundations of our Carneros AVA Seven’s Bench Single Vineyard. The vineyard is on a ridge at a 200-foot elevation, part of an uplifted riverbed that allows good drainage in the traditional clay-based soils of the region. The name Sevens Bench is derived from the two clones originally planted on our block: Clones 37 (Mount Eden) and Dijon 777.
