RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Food Pairings for Hartford Zinfandel Russian River Valley Highwire Vineyard
This is a zin that needs some time, there are good components but it is a little unbalanced right now. My experience with this Hartford zin (used to be a club member) is that needs a year after it is available before it really shows off.
The Hartford Zinfandel is a blend of 7 different vineyards (the average age of 80+ years). This gorgeously rich effort reveals a Pinot Noir-like sensitivity along with a seductive fragrant nose of black raspberries cherries spice box pepper and earth. In the mouth it's a flamboyant seductive expansive full-bodied savory wine with beautifully integrated acidity wood alcohol and tannin. Drink this decadent Zin over the next 5-6 years. The Zinfandels fashioned from old head-pruned Russian River vineyards are 100% destemmed but as many whole berries as possible are utilized in the wines' fermentations and the wines are aged in French oak. In terms of complexity richness and quality Hartford Court's Zins rank alongside those of Turley Wine Cellars.
