Hartford 2014 Russian River Zinfandel
Few Zinfandel producers can boast the same amount of high praise heaped upon their 2014 Zinfandels and those that can (Turley, Carslile, Martinelli ...) are either not available in NC or impossible to find. #10 on Spectator's 2016 Top 100 wines of the year, the Hartford is an absolute delight and steal at just $32 ($5 off it's suggested retail). Plump and fleshy, with a dense core of focused tannins and lively acidity. Aromas of ripe black raspberry, anise and licorice open to layered, slightly jammy flavors of black cherry, blueberry pie and smoky cracked pepper.
Regular Price: $37.99, Taylor's Price:$31.99
