Hartford Court Sevens Bench Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012
True to its Carneros roots, the 2012 Sevens Bench Pinot Noir carries the hallmark of the region - fruit intensity balanced by an earthy and savory side. The aromas open with black cherry and cherry pit, and lead into subtle mushroom and spice characters. The flavors are reminiscent of black cherry and Asian spice driven by a small amount of whole-cluster fermentation. The wine finishes with a juiciness and focus, with hints of cocoa and elegant tannins in the finish.
