Reviews/Information
"90 out of 100 - An outstanding effort, as well as a curiosity, is the 1999 Pinot Noir Marin Vineyard (425 cases). Made from a 14-year old vineyard planted with the Mt. Eden clone, cropped at a meager one ton of fruit per acre, and bottled with no filtration, this earthy, dark ruby-colored Pinot reveals abundant quantities of sweet black fruits, dry tannin, good structure, and notions of melted fudge intermixed with black cherries, plums, and raspberries. Dense, deep, youthful, and unevolved, it will age nicely for a decade. Don Hartford's winemaker, Mike Sullivan, told me that, like all their Pinot Noirs, it enjoyed a six-day cold soak prior to fermentation. About 70% new French oak was utilized." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
