2014 Hartford Family Winery Hartford Court Three Jacks Vineyard Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, USA (750ml)
Splits the difference between pure and well-oaked fruit, with a structured beam of vibrant green apple and pear flavors. The result is a deftly balanced, deeply nuanced, rich and layered wine of notable vibrance and edginess. Drink now. 286 cases made. - Wine Spectator, 92 pts
The 2014 Chardonnay Three Jacks Vineyard, a relatively small cuvée of about 340 cases, comes from multiple clonal selections, with 43% new French oak used. The result is a wine with striking wet-stone minerality that is reminiscent of a Grand Cru Chablis, a hint of tangerine oil and apple blossom, beautiful freshness, delineation and a medium to full-bodied, intensely saturated mouthfeel. This is a beautiful Chardonnay, and, much like the Stone Côte, probably capable of lasting 5-7 years minimum. - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 92 pts
