Hartford Court Muldune Trail Pinot Noir 2014
This mountain-grown wine expresses ripe fruits of the warm days and the acid balance from the cool nights. Vibrant fruit aromas of blueberry, raspberry and plum are the hallmarks of the aromatics along with a subtle cedar/cigar box note. These aromatics lead into intense flavors of berries and spice in this structured yet lively Pinot Noir.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Pinot Noir Muldune Trail comes from a vineyard at the southern end of the Anderson Valley planted at an elevation of 1,600 feet. Again unfined and unfiltered, this has a dense ruby/plum color that is more saturated than its two predecessors and notes of fresh herbs intermixed with wet gravel, blueberry, raspberry and pomegranate. It is medium-bodied, long, rich, and made from Dijon clones 115 and 777. This is a broad, savory, impressive Pinot Noir to drink over the next decade.
