In the midst of the glorious Hartford single-vineyard Zinfandels, it's easy to forget their always-excellent old vine blend, which is 20%-30% lower in price but only barely inferior in quality. The 2015 is a rich and lively Zinfandel showing aromas and flavors of dark berries, sweet plum, and rhubarb pie straight out of the oven, along with a nice dose of spicy, toasty oak. More austere than the single-vineyard Zins but still impeccably balanced and pure in feel. - HK 2018-08-09
