2018 Hartford Court 'Lands Edge' Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

$49.95

The vineyards for this Pinot Noir are found at the literal land’s edge of the Sonoma Coast, just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. The cool, maritime climate helps keep crops small and concentrated, preserving the natural acidity and purity of fruit flavors. Aromas of red and black cherry find pomegranate and rose petal nuances. The palate is elegant and polished with layered flavors of dark berries, plum and licorice, lingering on a mocha and mineral note at the finish. It’s a gorgeous coastal Pinot Noir with loads of complexity and firm tannins that speak to strong aging potential.
