Hartford Court Arrendell Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019 (6 Bottles) Russian River, California

$1,015.00 GST Included


The 2019 Arrendell Vineyard Pinot Noir is a deep, ruby-colored wine with complex aromas of blackcurrants, red cherries, forest floor, and violets are interlaced with a savory grilled herb nuance. Black cherries and kirsch flavors complement silky tannins and a multi-layered mouthfeel. The lingering and nuanced finish is a hallmark of all bottlings from this amazing vineyard site.

Arrendell Vineyard sits in arguably the coldest spot in the Green Valley of the Russian River Valley AVA. Each year this old-vine Pinot Noir vineyard, which was planted in 1975, struggles to ripen the one-ton/acre crop of old heirloom Pinot Noir selections by Halloween. The cold meso-climate that results from cool air settling in this low-lying vineyard preserves natural acidity in the grapes and helps preserve the purity expression of the unique, terroir in this wine. Natural acidity and density of distinct flavors that result from these adverse conditions also heightens the potential for extended aging of Arrendell Vineyard Pinot Noir bottlings.
