Wine Review: This medium purple colored Zinfandel opens with a fragrant red raspberry, pomegranate, and ripe red plum bouquet with a hint of balsam. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, bright, and juicy. The flavor profile is fruit forward, featuring strawberry, clove, and red raspberry with notes of chalky minerality and red plum. We also detected hints of triple sec, black cherry, and black tea. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins are nicely extended. The Tasting Panel would pair this Zin with duck confit, a pepper encrusted venison, or with shrimp and grits. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Hartford Vineyard is an elegant and powerful Zinfandel with blackberry, boysenberry, and allspice aromas, which are echoed on the palate. Black cherry flavors are balanced by subtle fennel and dried herb notes alongside a spicy, cinnamon stick finish. The well-integrated tannins extend the complex flavors, giving the wine great length.
