Wines From This Vineyard

2022 Hartford Jolene’s Vineyard Zinfandel


"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Jolene's Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel bursts with bold notes of Morello cherries, rosebud tea, hoisin, and unsmoked cigars giving way to hints of rose oil and sandalwood. The full-bodied palate has great tension and wonderfully velvety tannins, with a compelling mintiness lifting the concentrated black fruits, finishing long and spicy. It comes from head-trained vines planted over 100 years ago." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent, April 2024


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.
