2018 Hartford Court Old Vine Russian River Valley Zinfandel Sonoma California USA
"Already bottled, the 2018 Zinfandel Russian River Valley has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and sings of blackberry pie, blueberry compote and raspberry preserves with hints of mossy tree bark, hoisin and Indian spices. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, the palate features firm, chewy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing on a lingering raisin cake note."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91 Points
"This bursts with fresh and floral boysenberry aromas and flavors, gathering black licorice and smoky cracked pepper notes on the way to refined tannins. Drink now through 2030."
Wine Spectator 92 points
"This appellation wine comes from a blend of five vineyard-designated sites, all old vine, dry farmed and low yielding. Velvety and expansive on the palate, it has broad appeal in its rich density of cherry, strawberry and fleshy texture. Supple tannins and integrated oak allow a finishing touch of white pepper."
