Hartford Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Big nose of berries and some pepper
Dense on the palate with notes of sweet spices
Rich finish of dark fruit and spice

A friend supplied this wine for an outdoor dinner gathering. We had some gourmet sausages, exotic side dishes, and this wine fit right in. It is deep and complex, with interesting spice notes woven throughout.

After doing some research, I found out this wine sells for approximately $30 and gets big scores from the critics. If I find another bottle, I'll probably set it aside in the cellar for a while and see how it drinks in a couple years. Raise a glass!
