2014 Hartford Zinfandel Old Vine Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

A Zin that’s concentrated and nearly opaque, with a heady fragrance of spiced fruits plus a eucalyptus high note. It’s woodsy and autumnal, evocative of burning applewood or fall leaves, and its hotly purpled body is opulent with ripe blueberries, plums, plum skin steeped in clove.

This is a richly fruity wine that wraps itself around dense old-vine character.
