Hartford Court Jennifer's Pinot Noir 2011
Jennifer's Pinot Noir is opaque and powerful. It features aromas of boysenberries, black tea, lavender and saddle leather followed by ﬂavors of black raspberries and anise. The 2011 Jennifers Pinot is very dense, but with ﬁne tannins and a silky mouthfeel. It should be worthy of extended cellaring.
Named in honor of co-proprietor Jennifer Hartford, this wine is deﬁned by its power, concentration of fruit, structure and an underlying elegance. A wine that is built to age, Jennifer's proves that not all Pinot Noirs are shy, retiring, delicate souls. Jennifer's Pinot is sourced from a vineyard in the windy and very cool Sebastopol Hills sub region of the Russian River Valley AVA. Jennifer's Pinot is planted primarily to Clone 23 and is known for very small berries, low yields and a high skin-to-pulp ratio. The dark color, intense black fruit aroma and ﬂavor proﬁle are a testament to the terroir of this site.
