2014 Maffei Vineyard Zinfandel

Appellation
Russian River Valley

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 flavors of nectarine, cloves, and raspberry fruit leather that is effortlessly balanced by the exceptionally bright and pure natural acidity.
Vineyard Notes
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.
