This is definitely a Russian River Zin! Good fruit up front, strawberry, raspberry and a bit of pepper in the finish. Good wine for the price. Read more

Another tasty, velvet-textured Hartford Zin. But at least in this tasting, the '05 displayed only a fraction of the depth and richness of prior vintages. Ripe plum and cherry aromas and flavors, the usual Hartford seamless mouth-feel, but with a medium-body Pinot Noir-like weight and just not the full poop we're used to in the Hartford Zins.

Not Hartford's best. Good by all means but 2005 was not the best CA had to offer

This is the sixth vintage of our wildly popular Russian River Valley AVA Zinfandel. This old-vine Zinfandel provides alluring aromas of blackberry, sweet pipe tobacco, black pepper and anise, complemented by flavors reminiscent of fresh-baked blackberry pie with allspice, anise and caramel notes on the finish. Stunningly rich and concentrated, our 2005 Russian River Valley Zinfandel has incredible definition of fruit and sweet luscious tannins. To preserve exotic spice and sweet berry flavors, we use the same gentle handling techniques for making Zinfandel that we use with Pinot Noir.
