1999 Hartford Court Pinot Noir Marin

Popped and poured at Lorena's in Maplewood, NJ today over lunch with friends, and this drank well from the get go. Nice dark cherry and raspberry nose, with subtle Asian spice and cedar notes. Much of the same on the palate, wih nice fruit. Cherry and strawberry were the shining star here, with a nice acidity, and clean finish. A classic example of a good, mature, California pinot noir. Drink 'em if you got 'em, and decant for sediment. 89 points. Cheers!
