2017 BACA Tug O' War Zinfandel
Zinfandel - Maffei Vineyard, Russian River Valley 2017 Vintage
"The 2017 Zinfandel Tug O'War Maffei Vineyard (100% Zinfandel) comes from a site in the Russian River and has a classic bouquet of spiced plums, cedarwood, dried orange rind, and potpourri. Incredibly complex, it's elegant and polished on the palate, with fine tannins, good sweetness of fruit, and an outstanding finish. It's a ripe, sexy, yet elegant Zinfandel."
Russian River Valley AVA – Maffei Vineyard
Tug O' War was born in California’s historic vineyards planted many decades ago by a community of Italian immigrants. Here, gorgeous old vines struggle in limited, loamy soils. The resulting wines exhibit profound depth, nuance, and serious aging potential. Here, warm days create rich wine with pure, explosive, ripe berry flavors, which are tempered by the cool, foggy marine nights that give this Zinfandel a nerve of acidity.
