Seascape Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Hartford consistently has some of the absolute best Pinots. Consistent. Excellent on their own. With food - salmon, cheeses, even with something sweet. One of our favorite wineries and one of their great Pinots. Will hold for at least a few more years but great to drink now. — 8 days ago

Four Hearts Vineyards Chardonnay 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2017 Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyards is another pretty, appellation-level Chardonnay from Hartford Court. Apricot, orange peel, spice, chamomile and lightly buttered notes flesh out in this resonant, inviting Chardonnay. My impression is that the Four Hearts will drink best upon release.

Velvet Sisters Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2013

This wine opens with one of the most stunning noses I have come across in quite while. A fruit basket of blackberries, raspberries and plum explode from the glass in a way where you can’t wait for your first sip. The palate is lush and generous without being at all heavy. Flavors of black cherry and plum lead to notes of sandalwood, delicate oak and forest spice. The finish is long and shows off acidity of a much younger wine along with dark fruit and velvety, plush tannins. Just absolutely wonderful! — 2 months ago

Substantial pinot noir from RRV, succulent fruit, nice acidity and minimal tannins. This is very enjoyable and a great example of Pinot from RRV. Drink now or hold for a couple of years. — 12 days ago

Seascape Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

For once in my life I completely agree with an average 92.4 rating according to CT at this particular moment. This wine was ready to go from the first seconds, but only continued to get better as it sat out. Stone-ground peach and ripe pear grittiness. Walnuts. A touch of sweetness. Excellent salinity and minerality up front and became much more substantial towards the finish. The versatility here seems to be quite profound, as this would go very well all by itself, or would pair with the full spectrum of food. Heck, I would even say this Sheridan a is substantial enough to cut through a ribeye. The only thing I would consider doing different would be to actually decant it! No signs of decline. — a month ago

Arrendell Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

My first nice ($30+) bottle of pinot noir. Nothing short of transcendent. Blueberry and black cherry, fabulously balanced through the mid-palate, finishing on something like ocean spray. I was still tasting it a minute after the first sip. Shared the bottle with Neal, Robyn and Erin, paired chicken parmesan and romaine salad. The best meal of 2019. — 13 days ago

La Court Nizza Barbera d'Asti 2013

In-your-face Barbera, mostly due to oak-driven fruit. I’d be interested to know if Chiarlo dialed it back in later vintages once Nizza became designated. — 24 days ago

Far Coast Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Big, powerful Sonoma Pinot. Ripe strawberries, morello cherries, and kirsch melded together with big, chewy tannins. I love Sonoma pinots and Hartford makes some of the best. But note that these are bold wines, and while I like them this way, Pinot lovers who prefer lighter, more mineral-driven, wines may balk. Nevertheless, this is extremely well-made with awesome fruit. 2016 vintage on Aug 31, 2019 — 2 months ago
