Critic Review
2022 Top 100 | Wine Enthusiast, Jim Gordon
"Tempting raspberry and sweet strawberry aromas lead to a good, rich palate full of baked cherries, maple and wild blackberries on a smooth texture with little tannin but plenty of body. This distinctive wine is elegant in spite of its elevated alcohol, and fascinating to sip."

"The 2020 Zinfandel Tug O'War Maffei Vineyard brings a warming bouquet of spice, kirsch, and cedar. The palate is rounded and full of black raspberry liqueur, crushed violets, and sweet incense. This captures the warmth of the vintage without being weighted."

Blood Orange

Medium garnet in color. This Zinfandel has luscious flavors of blackberry and raspberry preserves, red plum, a hint of blood orange, and dark and brooding oak notes. The texture is plush and weighty, juxtaposed with a lift of acid that leads to a finish laced with a ferrous minerality.

Barrel Aging 14 months

Russian River Valley AVA – Maffei Vineyard

Tucked into an area filled with historic California vineyards, stoic old vines planted in 1929 and 1949 struggle in marginal, loamy soils resulting in wines with profound depth, nuance and serious aging potential. Moderate daytime temperatures create rich wine characterized by pure, explosive, ripe berry flavors tempered by cool marine foggy nights that impart a nerve of acidity. Farmed by the granddaughter of the founding Italian family, Joanne Maffei is very hands-on. You’ll always find her in working in the vineyard and her cheerful approach to caring for the land makes everyone feel like part of family.
