2015 Maffei Zinfandel
92 POINTS - CALIFORNIA GRAPEVINE

Jim and Ned Neumiller, Seghesio’s father-and-son winegrowers, have been working with the Maffei family for several years to secure fruit from head-trained heritage selection blocks planted in 1928 and 1942. They work hand-in-hand with the original owners’ granddaughter Joanne Maffei, who, just like the Seghesios, is a passionate steward of her family’s land—so much so that Ned considers Maffei to be among the most meticulously farmed vineyards he’s ever seen. “I swear Joanne has a name for every vine,” concurs Jim.

Tasting Notes
Cranberry, pomegranate and spice box dominate the nose. Lush strawberry, raspberry and black cherry flavors follow on the palate. Wonderful, rich mid-palate and vibrant acidity for a clean fruit-driven finish.

MAFFEI VINEYARDS

Sandwiched between great Pinot Noir vineyards in the west Santa Rosa plains in Russian River Valley, the fruit is sourced from two blocks planted in 1928 and 1942. Meticulously farmed by Joanne Maffei, the marginal soils stress the vines forcing them to struggle to produce and maintain a crop. This vineyard is picked later than average and brings unique flavor components different than Zinfandel from anywhere else in the county.
