Winemaker Tasting Notes: Don Hartford tends this 93-year old vineyard located on approximately seven acres along Wood Road in the Russian River AVA of Sonoma County. The vineyard is head-pruned and produces low annual yields of roughly 1.5 tons an acre. Some vines produce only several clusters of intensely flavored grapes a year. The signature of this unique terroir is a sweet blackberry aroma and a supple texture. The Hartford Vineyard has also been farmed using organic and bio-dynamic techniques since 2004. The 2007 Hartford Vineyard’s low-yielding vines produce elegant Zin characterized by a sumptuous and velvety texture. Boysenberry, anise and allspice aromas transition into ripe black raspberry and mulberry flavors with a cinnamon stick finish. Well-integrated tannins juxtapose juicy flavors and an opulent texture. Rated 92/100 "Outstanding" by Robert Parker Jr.
