"A strong cedar and rosemary aroma gets you prepped for the concentrated, brilliant, dried cherry and fresh raspberry flavors that follow. This high-octane wine comes from 100-year-old vines. It is lively, flavor packed and practically vibrating with vibrant oak and skin tannins." - Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast, January 2024
Wines From This Vineyard
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 beginning 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, with very small percentages of Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and Carignan.
