Critic Review
Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2019 Zinfandel Tug O'War from the Maffei Vineyard in the Russian River sports a semi-opaque purple/ruby color followed by classic Zinfandel strawberry and briary red and black fruits as well as cigar, cedar, and spicy aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, on the palate, it has ripe yet firmer tannins, a straight, elegant texture, and good length on the finish."

"Soft, sweet and densely layered, this wine offers strong flavors of cola, baked plum, blackberry and licorice. The oak is prominent and adds vanilla and baking spice, underscoring the overall richness in style."

Dusty Gravel

Deep ruby-purple, the 2019 Tug O' War Zinfandel features lucious, ripe fruit aromas of ripe brambly berries and red plum are highlighted with notes of bergamot and dusty gravel. The texture is polished and loaded with rich, full-bodied appeal. A darker fruit profile on the palate is juxtaposed with bright, juicy acidity that leads to a finessed finish laced with charred oak.

Vintage NotesThe 2019 vintage began with a wet spring bringing three inches of rain in May. In response to the late rains our vineyards received diligent attention to control vigorous vine growth. A long Indian summer followed with mild weather, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. The long picking windows bore fruit with beautiful freshness at optimal ripeness. The resulting wines are exceptionally elegant.
Maybe try...
