Dunnuck called this “an incredibly charming, delicious Pinot Noir that’s going to deliver the goods...” and that’s good enough for us. The first swirl of the glass releases aromas of black cherry, allspice and loam. The first sip brings wild raspberries and crushed rock minerality with a juicy mouthfeel supported by bright acidity and silky tannins. Consider the goods delivered!
Readers looking for an incredibly charming, delicious Pinot Noir that’s going to deliver the goods should check out the 2019 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley from Hartford Court. Revealing a translucent ruby/plum color, it has a wonderful nose of spiced red and black fruits, candied violets, orange blossom, and incense. Medium-bodied on the palate, it’s wonderfully balanced, with soft, supple tannins, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish. Drink this beauty any time over the coming 5-6 years.
