"The 2021 Zinfandel Jolene's Vineyard has a similar profile to the Winberrie Knolls Vineyard but amplifies it with more density in its notes of ripe blackberry liqueur, violets, and black pepper spice. With more opulence on the palate, ripe tannins, and a silky, coating mouthfeel, it reveals notes of mocha, black cherry, and turned earth." - Audrey Frick, jebdunnuck.com, July 2023
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.
