2014 Maffei Vineyard Zinfandel
2014 Maffei Vineyard Zinfandel
Russian River Valley
VINEYARD:  Registered by the Historic Vineyard Society, the Maffei Vineyard was originally planted with a heritage selection of Zinfandel in the 1920s by Umberto and Maria Maffei, grandparents to current owner/vineyard manager Joanne Maffei. This picturesque site is located on Olivet Road, between Piner and River roads, providing a snapshot of California Zinfandel history with its head-trained, gnarly, 80+-year-old vines.
 
TASTING NOTES: This wine abounds with lush aromas of ripe plum, blueberries, blackberries, and dark chocolate. A complex array of peppermint bark,salt water taffy, cotton candy, and eucalyptus compliment the superb bouquet of elemental blue fruit. The palate is full and rich upon entry, displaying wonderful flavorsof nectarine, cloves, and raspberry fruit leather that is effortlessly balanced by the exceptionally bright and pure natural acidity.

"The Zinfandel Maffei Vineyard of 90+ year old head trained vines, offers bold and concentrated red and black fruit flavors with notes of black pepper and spice. It displays firm round tannins, good acidity and a persistent finish. Aged 16 months in 40% new French oak, it has slightly bigger shoulders than the Zinfandel Grist Vineyard without losing freshness or elegance. A superb wine with great aging potential." — October 2016
