Despite the fact it's easily the lowest alcohol Hartford Zinfandel I've ever tasted, it's also easily the best 2011 Zin I've tasted. Sensational depth and length to this wine, but with the usual Hartford finesse and grace. Extremely complex and interesting nose combines plum, dark cherry, cassis, prune, Asian spice, smoke, and red flower petals. Seamless and pure-feeling in the mouth and finish, this is an absolute classic old-vine Russian River Zinfandel. - HK 2016-03-24
