"This shows a distinctive sense of place, featuring aromas of huckleberry and fresh underbrush, as well as complex, potent flavors of berry cobbler, minerals and roasted sage. Needs time. Best from 2013 through 2017." (WS)

"The 2009 Zinfandel Old Vine walks a hypothetical path between the complexity, foresty, spicy notes of Pinot Noir and the exuberant, ripe, rich blue and black fruits of Zinfandel. Blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, pepper, spice and forest floor characteristics result in a complex, medium to full-bodied, supple-textured Zinfandel. This gorgeous Zin is already irresistible and should drink nicely for 4-5 years.

One of the top Zinfandel specialists in California is Don Hartford at Jess Jackson’s Hartford winery. They also produce an impressive portfolio of Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays under the Hartford Court label. These five Zinfandels all come from dry-farmed, low-yielding, old vine Russian River sites."
