VINEYARD CHARACTER - Jolene’s Vineyard takes its name from a merging of the first names of the owners of Maffei Vineyards - Joanne and Arlene. This old
vine vineyard joined the Hartford Zinfandel portfolio in 2004, as a single vineyard offering, and as an important component of our Russian River Valley Zinfandel blend. It is rare for an older Russian River Valley Zinfandel vineyard, such as Jolene’s, to be planted almost exclusively to Zinfandel selections; there are only small percentages of Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and Carignane
intermingled among the vines.
TASTING NOTES - This old-vine Zinfandel’s alluring aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, blackberry and cassis are the highlights of the single vineyard Jolene’s bottling. The texture is rich and mouth filling with ripe blueberry and tobacco characteristics, supple tannins and a creamy, elegant finish.
