Full Answer

This brand of zinfandel is produced in Russian River Valley, in California's Sonoma region. The particular vineyard in which the grapes are grown features vines that are over 100 years old. The damp, cool area where the vineyard is located helps to influence the well balanced final product.

In a very small production, Hartford makes as little as 300 cases of a particular zinfandel. This slightly boozy red wine, with 15.5 percent alcohol, is smooth and dense. On the palate, the drinker tastes notes of currant, black pepper and anise.

  • Q:

    What can be used in place of cream of tartar?

    A:

    When baking, Kraft recommends substituting an equal amount of lemon juice in place of the cream of tarter. The juice provides the acidity needed to activate the ingredients and create the air pockets that prevent a dense finished product. If a recipe calls for 2/3 teaspoon of cream of tarter and 1/3 teaspoon of baking powder, cooks can simply substitute 1 whole teaspoon of baking powder.
