Hartford Court Pinot Noir Land’s Edge Vineyard 2014 California Red Wine 750 mL (Copy)

$55.99

Our number one goal at Hartford Family Winery is to make intensely concentrated wines from small, low yielding, high risk – high reward vineyards that express unique ’personality’. Hartford Court bottlings are delicious and flavorful Pinot Noirs and site expressive, cold climate Chardonnays. The Hartford label showcases the bold personalities of old vine Zinfandel vineyards (most over 90 years old) using identical artisan production techniques employed for most of our Pinot Noirs.

 

Description

Wine Advocate 92 points – The only 2014 tasted was the early-bottled 2014 Pinot Noir Land’s Edge Vineyards, which come from a vineyard four miles from the Pacific Ocean. Aged in 32% new French oak, the wine displays raspberry and blueberry fruit, damp earth, fresh porcini mushrooms and plenty of minerality. This is a juicy, tightly knit, but concentrated and promising Pinot Noir that has that forward fruit of this vintage well displayed..Robert M. Parker, Jr.
Land’s Edge Pinot Noir is sourced from vineyards located at the ‘Land’s Edge’ of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The vineyards are driven by a maritime influence, producing a small but concentrated crop of Pinot Noir that is harvested in late September through mid-October. The foggy coastal climate preserves natural acidity in the grapes and helps delineate the purity of fruit flavors and expression of the unique coastal terroir in this wine. Balanced acidity, layers of complexity and firm tannins will allow for long and graceful aging of Land’s Edge Vineyards Pinot Noir.
