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. " - Audrey Frick,, July 2023


2021 Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Chardonnay

94 Points

"A more opulent style with a richer golden hue, the 2021 Chardonnay Sevens Bench Vineyard takes on more tropical ripe fruits in its notes of golden pineapple, baking spice, and orange zest.  Full-bodied, with a rich yet clean, viscous texture, ripe peach, honeysuckle, and citrus oil, it's long on the palate and has nice balance.  Drink it now or over the next 6-8 years. —Audrey Frick,, July 2023


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,, July 2021

Call for availability

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.
