Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) The Hartford Vineyard Zinfandel is a vibrant, dark, concentrated wine with blackberry, raspberry, anise, clove and chocolate aromas and flavors. The wine’s silken texture is accented by 100% French oak aging, which also imparted hints of nutmeg, caramel and coffee to its long finish. The wine was not fined or filtered.

    (2004 Vintage) Solidly focused on plentifully oaked, ripe blackberry fruit in the nose, this nicely balanced bottling follows with like-minded, moderately deep, berryish flavors and shows far more polish and far less heat than its stated 16.2% alcohol predicts. It comes without much in the way of tannic bite, and it looks good to go in the near term.
