2011 Hartford Family Wines Hartford Court Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyard Russian River Valley Sonoma:

(made from vines planted in 1975): Light, bright gold. Sexy, floral-accented aromas of orange, poached pear, iodine and honey, with a minerally topnote. Densely packed and firm, with very good clarity to its citrus fruit, iodine and buttered toast flavors. Finishes silky and long, with suave aromatic persistence. 92 points

Hartford Court 2011 Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyards:

The 2011 Chardonnay Four Hearts Vineyards is striking in its beauty. Dried pears, flowers, spices and a hint of French oak are all woven together in a gorgeous wine that captures the essence of Chardonnay from this specific part of the Russian River. Clean veins of minerality frame the saline, bracing finish. The Four Hearts is one of the very finest California Chardonnays readers will find in this price range. Most of the fruit comes from Tom Dehlinger, so the quality level here is hardly surprising. Drinking window: 2013 - 2018 - by Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2013

Description
Winery Notes:

This distinct Russian River Valley Chardonnay displays yellow apple, peach blossom, tangerine and crystallized ginger. Fresh flavors of Gravenstein apple and citrus are intertwined with layers of spice. A rich and weighty mid-palate is followed by a very long exotic, mineral infused finish.

Vineyard Character:
Our family of four makes Four Hearts Vineyards Chardonnay from estate and neighboring vineyards located in the heart of the Russian River Valley AVA. The vineyards are planted with very diverse Chardonnay clonal selections that include old Wente, Sees and Rued field selections, Dijon Clone 95 and Clone 4. These clones and field selections are picked and fermented separately and only the best barrels from each lot are blended to make the final bottling. The 2011 Hartford Court Four Hearts Chardonnay has a weighty texture with spicy and layered flavors and finishes with a brightness that reflects the cool climate origins of the vineyards that comprise this blend. All wines are barrel fermented in French oak barrels, and complete full malolactic fermentation with bi-monthly lees stirring
