Hailey's Block is located within the renowned Arrendell Vineyard and is named after founder Don Hartford's daughter Hailey. The block was planted 11 years ago to Dijon selections of Pinot Noir at a time when Hailey was just six years old. Over the last eleven years, we have watched both Hailey and her namesake Pinot Noir mature into personalities of great strength, beauty and charm. The 2006 Hailey's Block Pinot Noir represents a block within the prestigious Arrendell Vineyard planted with Dijon 114 and 777 selections.
Arrendell Vineyard sits in arguably the coldest spot in the Green Valley sub-appellation of the Russian River Valley AVA. The cold meso-climate that results from cool air settling in this low-lying vineyard preserves natural acidity in the grapes and helps preserve the purity expression of the unique terroir in this beautiful, new release.
