Seghesio Family Vineyards

2016 Maffei Zinfandel
2016 Maffei Zinfandel

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
Lush strawberry compote, cherry liqueur and forest floor undertones round out a rich mid-palate with balanced acidity and tannin structure.

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.
