"Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Hartford Court Pinot Noir Fog Dance Vineyard gives a full on bombastic black cherry and black raspberry-scented nose with hints of rose hip tea, dark chocolate and lavender with a hint of black pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is very elegant and fresh with more of a savory/earthy character coming through, supported by fine-grained tannins and finishing on a beautiful stewed tea note. 361 cases were produced." (WA)

"The 2015 Pinot Noir Fog Dance Vineyard is bold, juicy and exuberant. Dried flowers, tobacco, mint and spice notes add a distinctive floral/savory component. I would prefer to drink this juicy, Russian River Pinot over the next few years." (VM)
