Hartford Court Land's Edge Vineyards Pinot Noir has complex aromas of ripe cherries, violets and cedar are followed by flavors of perfectly ripe, firm black cherries and mixed red and black berries. Allspice and coffee notes complement a long, multi-faceted finish in this "True Sonoma Coast" Pinot Noir.
The primary source of fruit for Landís Edge Pinot Noir is our estateís Annapolis Vineyard, located along the windswept northern part of the Sonoma Coast Mountain Range overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There is only one cascading ridge between the ocean, Annapolis Vineyard and the other vineyards, including Seascape Vineyard, from which Landís Edge is also sourced. The resulting cold climate reduces the Pinot Noir crop to minuscule levels - often picked as late as November. However, this cool, and frequently foggy, coastal climate preserves natural acidity in the berries, helping to delineate the purity of the fruit flavors. Balanced acidity, layers of complexity and firm tannins will allow for long and graceful aging of this highly expressive, inaugural vintage of Landís Edge Vineyards Pinot Noir.
