While they produce other wonderful varietals, Hartford’s Pinot Noirs are their crowning achievements.
Today’s Hartford Court 2012 Land’s Edge Vineyards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir garnered a 90+ Point accolade from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate - and extremely high praise from our own tasting panel. We all adored this wine. Agent Red cited this wine as ‘something really special.’
Be sure to get your hands on this very special wine.
Deep ruby at its heart, with a rustic red rim at the very edge of the glass.
Well balanced, with sweet red fruit of strawberry and dark cherry laid against cherry cola, orange zest, clove, sage, and pomegranate.
Elegent, with equal footing for both fruit and earth flavors. Sweet blackberry, reduced cherry, and blueberry mingle with unsweetened cola, freshly fallen leaves, aged sandalwood, black peppercorn, nutmeg, and a hint of earthy minerality.
Not overpowering in any one area, but very well balanced in all, this wine is absolutely beautiful. Silky smooth on entry, the wine leaves you with just a hint of blueberry at the very tip of the tongue.
An herb-encrusted filet, perfectly grilled, served alongside freshly roasted mushrooms.
