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. - HK 2007-08-20
