Food Pairings for Hartford Court Zinfandel Russian River Valley Highwire Vinyard
01/06/2011. This wine is still ripening and needs to age. Nose opens to blackberry, raisin, bitter cocoa powder, anise, and assorted spices. The palate launches with raisins, cocoa and bitter, unripened fruits, including tart plum and cherry, leading to an astringent finish that coats the velvety mouthfeel, leaving a tannic aftertaste.
Our old-vine Russian River Valley Zinfandel offers tremendous balance of fruit and elegant tannins. Fruit bowl aromas of blueberry, loganberry, and black raspberry are complemented by flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, and anise. Mocha and allspice flavors add to the complex and elegant mouth feel.
Consistently distinctive spicy, white pepper nuances differentiate the Highwire single-vineyard Zinfandel from our other Zinfandel bottlings. Intense, wild blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors complement the white pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon notes.
