Hartford Court farms several vineyards in Green Valley, the source of Fog Dance Vineyards Pinot Noir. They named this
Pinot Noir out of respect for the dance performed by the Pacific Ocean fog, drifting through the vineyards and back again
to the sea each day. This wine reflects its cool Green Valley terroir, showing the brightness and purity of cherry and
cranberry flavors along with an elegant and refined texture.
Pure aromas of Queen Anne cherries, rose petals and cinnamon are supported by flavors of cranberries, red cherries
and allspice. Velvety, fine grained tannins complement a long and sophisticated finish reminiscent of black tea in this
new Green Valley Pinot Noir.
"The similarly-colored, expressive 2007 Pinot Noir Fog Dance Vineyard (another Green Valley site) is one of my favorite Pinots in this line-up. Loads of rose petal, black raspberry, and other floral characteristics emerge from this full-bodied, layered, multidimensional wine. It reveals a subtle hint of oak, very good acidity, and unmistakable amounts of minerality. "
