2008 Hartford Court Fog Dance Vineyard Green Valley of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.69, 443 cases, $55. Estate vineyard. Aged 11 months in 50% new French oak. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately deep reddish-purple color in the glass. Lovely aromas of black raspberries, rose petals and oak char. Tasty flavors of berries, black cherries, graham, dark coffee and mocha. Smoothly textured and easy to drink. Too much oak-derived flavors for my taste. Good. Reviewed June 8, 2010
