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

Vintage NotesThe season started out with an unseasonably warm, dry winter. It wasn't until the end of March that cold, rainy weather arrived, and the mild spring gave the vines a strong, early start. Even with above normal temperatures throughout the summer and fall, we still experienced the marine influence that defines the limiting conditions of our premium Pinot Noir sites - cool morning fog and afternoon wind. This vintage produced great wines that are fresh, focused, and beautifully balanced.
