2022 Hartford Dina's Vineyard Zinfandel

97 Points

"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Dinas Old Vine Zinfandel flies from the glass with notes of charcoal, wet rocks, and black truffle leading to a core of baked blueberries and stewed plums plus wafts of sandalwood and tree bark. The full-bodied palate has a seriously racy backbone of acidity and velvety tannins supporting the generous earth-laced blue fruit layers, finishing with epic length. This comes mostly from head-trained vines planted over 100 years ago" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent, April 2024




Dina's Vineyard was planted by the Arata family more than 100 years ago. Today only about five acres of gnarled, dry-farmed vines remain at the Arata home. The vines are predominantly headtrained. They are planted on the typical old-vine, eight-by-eight spacing, originally intended to allow horses to cultivate between the vines in both directions of the vineyard planting. A deep, dark color, coffee-like aromas, and dense, broad texture are all typical indicators of Dina's Vineyard terroir.
