Deeply colored for a Pinot. Nose shows blueberry and floral notes on top of a distinctly earthy core - I'm not always sure what is meant by "forest floor," but this wine seems to have it. In the mouth rather dry and chunky in texture, relatively straightforward in flavors and finish. Very good, just not up to my usual elevated expectations for Hartford Pinot's. - HK 2018-06-27
