ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2007 Chardonnay Four Hearts, aged in 40% new oak and 100% barrel-fermented, boasts a creamy, creme brulee-like character along with oodles of orange blossom, nectarine, and crushed rock notes, a full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning richness and purity, and zesty acidity. Like so many of the 2007s, its sensational fragrance and fruit purity are dazzling. All of these Chardonnays have 4-6 years of aging potential, perhaps even longer.
The family of four makes Four Hearts Vineyards Chardonnay from estate and neighboring vineyards located in the four key regions that form the heart of the Russian River Valley AVA; the Middle Reach, Laguna Ridge, Green Valley and the Santa Rosa Bench. The soil is a mixture of ash and lava from ancient volcanoes plus alluvial gravel from rivers and streams. The so-called “Goldridge” soils (fine, sandy loam) found here are prized for fine wine production because they drain well and are not very fertile. The vineyards are planted with very distinctive Chardonnay clonal selections that range from the Old Wente and Rued Chardonnay field selections, to Dijon Clone 96, and Dijon Clone 76. These distinctive clones are picked and fermented separately. Only the best barrels from each lot are blended to make the final bottling. The Hartford Court Four Hearts Vineyards Chardonnay has a weighty texture with spicy and layered flavors and finishes with a brightness that reflects the cool climate origins of these stellar vineyards. 100% barrel fermented, 100% malolactic with weekly lees stirring in the barrel (batonnage).
