SITE DESCRIPTION
Planted in 1928 by the grandfather of Joanne Maffei who currently farms the vineyard. Vines are head-trained so that the fruit is evenly distributed around the head, with ample space between clusters, to minimize rot. Leaves are pulled on the north side for aeration, while the canopy is left on top to provide shade protection.
FRUIT CHARACTER
Zinfandel: Raspberry, strawberry, spicy aromas and flavors

International Wine Review
"This old vine Zinfandel opens with an exotic, spicy perfume of spice, dark red fruit, and a hint of cassis liqueur. This is a big, densely flavored wine that fills the mouth. It has a smooth, layered texture, rich red and black fruit flavors, and polished tannins. Made from 80+ year old, head trained vines originally planted by Umberto and Maria Maffei. The Maffei Vineyard is registered by the Historic Vineyard society." — September 2015
