    Our recent trip to Hartford Court really opened my eyes to their Chardonnays and their Pinot Noirs, converting me into a big fan of their wines. This 2017 Pinot is explosively aromatic with bold spices, nice greenery, and Bing cherry. The palate displays dusty fruit, an exceptional tannin/acid balance, then it all comes together with a spicy and biting finish. This is a fun and tasty wine.

    I was really impressed by this bottle. Even though Russian River is traditionally one of the cooler climate growing sights in Northern California, producers have been making riper and fatter wines lately. Not so with Hartford Court. This wine is very fresh and pretty with a medium weight palate and great expression of fruit. I think the understated nature of the label often sees this wine overlooked when compared to some of the garish cartoon labels that might capture attention these days, but luckily the nature of this wine speaks for itself. I will definitely be adding this one to the top of my list for my recommended Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs.

    This a pretty Pinot. Noir. It's a medium body wine so no jammy fruit here. It's balanced, has good acid and the fruit has an elegant touch. On the nose it has some savory notes. This kind of Pinot, at this price, doesn't come around very often. Get it will in stock!

    This Pinot Noir has lots of lovely variations on rich cherries and raspberries. Add in a luscious texture, fine tannins, and a slight hint of freshly tilled earth, and you have a Pinot Noir that is one of my gold standards for the Russian River Valley! These guys produce beautiful wines ever year, so I'm always happy to enjoy any of their bottles.

    Wow indeed! This is a classic example of the effusive aromatics found in many high-end Russian River Valley Pinot’s. Hartford’s 2017 Pinot delivers clean, fresh and primary fruit all wonderfully balanced with lively acidity. The nose is full of plum, lavender, cola, and brambly undertones. I can safely say that this wine is drinking as good or better than anything twice the price.

    Wow! This new release from Hartford Court is just off the hook. It tastes just like one of their high-end single vineyard releases but at less than half the price! Explosive aromatics of bing cherry, sandalwood, clove and warm earth. For me a perfect, benchmark expression of the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. The palate is highly polished, pure fruited and silky soft. Waves of ripe lush fruit ebb across the palate. The finish is lifted with exotic Asian spices, judicious French oak and heightened bright acidity. So pure and well well made. It's stunning that Hartford Court can put out wines of this caliber at this price point.
    Top Value!
