Winemaker Tasting Notes: The Hartford Russian River Valley Zinfandel is a blend of old-vine, dry farmed and low yielding Zinfandel vineyards from the Russian River Valley. These old vineyards (average vineyard age is about 75+ years) offer an impressive articulation of juiciness and depth of flavor. Bright, natural acidity and vibrant fruit aromas and flavors are a result of typically cool fog-laden nights and warm days in the eastern Russian River Valley. To preserve exotic spice and sweet berry flavors, we use the same gentle handling techniques for making Zin that we use with Pinot Noir. This old-vine Zinfandel provides captivating aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, blackberry and white pepper and anise, complemented by flavors reminiscent of black raspberries, bittersweet chocolate and cinnamon. Generally available with more continuity of supply compared to our single vineyard offerings.
