Critic Review
Owen Bargreen
"Sourced from the Maffei Vineyard, this comes from the Russian River in Sonoma County. One of the plantings dates all the way back to 1929. This is a cooler site for Zinfandel, as this opens with red currants and dill notes alongside ripe red raspberry and potpourri on the nose. The palate is very fresh and polished with silky tannins."

Dried Flowers



Deep garnet in color, with dark and brooding aromas of blackberry, pomegranate and dried flowers. The texture is full and finessed, complimented by a lift of fresh acidity that leads to a long, savory finish.

Barrel Aging 10 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.
