2018 Hartford Court Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1463362 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Starting with the 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley, which comes from multiple sites and was brought up in 27% new French oak, it has a vivid ruby hue to go with classic Russian River notes of mulled cherry and raspberry fruits, cola, spice box, and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, round, and beautifully textured, it's a totally charming, balanced, elegant Pinot Noir that punches way above its weight. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is an outstanding wine for the price, made from a majority of estate-grown grapes across the appellation. Given 10 months in French oak, 27% of it new, it is designed to be delicious out the gate, with a lush opulence that is soft, broad and supple across the palate. Plummy and brimming in dark cherry and cola, it finishes with moderate structure and baking spice. *Editors’ Choice* (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Pinot Noir (Russian River) is a very pretty appellation-level wine in this range. Floral, finely cut and lifted, the 2018 captures all of the energy of the growing season. Crushed red berries and floral notes add energy to this medium-bodied, refreshing Pinot. I can hardly wait to taste the rest of the 2018 Hartford Court Pinots. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

The 2017 release of this wine, that also garnered 95 points from Jeb Dunnuck, went on to be one of K&L's best selling wines of the year! With the 2018 Hartford Court have yet again proven they are the winery to beat. Once again they've put out an incredible Pinot Noir that perfectly showcases the quintessential expression of deliciously pure, bright, cherry fruited, silky soft, Russian River Pinot Noir. Grown and made using the exact same single block, micro-vinification techniques that are used for the higher end wines. The immaculate farming and precise wine making make this bottle THE go-to Russian River Pinot Noir for under $30. If you're looking for a delicious, polished, stylish, Pinot that over delivers in every way, this is it.
