2013 Hartford Court Pinot Noir Hailey's Block
Green Valley of Russian River AVA, Sonoma
WB Rating: 90

Alcohol by volume: 14.5%
Price at time of purchase: $65.00 (from winery)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

Quite different from the velvety Pinot's coming from warmer Russian River locations, the Hailey's Block (a small block in the stupendous Arrendel vineyard) is lean and wiry, less fruit forward but with lots of spiciness and attractive, earthy, complex notes of underbrush and cedar. Pomegranate and cherry fruit with a distant touch of red licorice. Medium bodied and still a bit tight in the mouth, with room to evolve. - HK 2017-07-18
