Wines From This Vineyard

2019 Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Pinot Noir

"True to its Carneros roots, the 2019 Sevens Bench Pinot Noir carries the hallmark of the region-fruit intensity balanced by an earthy and savory side. The aromas open with raspberry and boysenberry, and lead into subtle truffle and spice characters. The flavors are reminiscent of black cherry and Asian spice; a subtle black tea component is driven by a small amount of whole-cluster fermentation. The wine finishes with juiciness and elegant tannin." - Jeff Stewart & Tiaan Lordan, Winemakers

2015 Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Pinot Noir

93 Points

"This earthy wine is not loud on the nose in fruit tones, yet brings notes of mushroom, chalky, soot, and compost to the fore. It's tannic and dense on the palate, with a forest-floor character alongside notes of savory Asian spice and ripe red fruit." - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, July, 2018

2019 Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Chardonnay

96 Points

"This bright, effusive wine is juicy in citrus and mango. It’s also flinty and bursting in sea spray, offering a lush, voluptuous midpalate of complex concentration. The contrast leads to a viscous, lengthy finish of floral beauty. —Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, May 2022

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

2017 Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Chardonnay

93 Points

"The 2017 Chardonnay Sevens Bench Vineyard bursts with expressive green mango, guava, and apple pie scents plus suggestions of coriander seed, cedar chest, and pineapple tart. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is all class with lovely freshness defining the apple and tropical flavors, finishing on a spicy note. – Feb. 2020

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.
