This alluring and hedonistic wine has amazing extract and purity of fruit focus. Vibrant fruit aromas of black cherry, blueberry, anise and violets harmonize with subtle cinnamon stick notes. The captivating aromas lead into equally vibrant flavors of berries and allspice in this sensuously elegant Pinot Noir.
In the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County, the local residents speak an obscure dialect of English known as Boontling, developed in the late 1800s. The "Velvet Sisters" are local historical figures who in Boontling lore became known for wearing plush velvet dresses that they had purchased on a trip to British Columbia. We call this wine "Velvet Sisters" in tribute to the Anderson Valley history and the wine's plush velvety texture.
Hartford Family Winery was founded in 1994 as a result of Don and Jennifer Hartford’s appreciation for the wines, the people, and the unique vineyards near their Russian River Valley home. Located in the Sonoma County town of Forestville, the winery is about 15 miles from the cool Pacific Coast.
