Green & Red-Zinfandel-"Chiles Canyon Vineyards" Napa Valley-2014

Green & Red
"Chiles Canyon Vineyards"


Since the 1970s Green & Red has made one of Napa Valley’s best strong, bold, spicy Red Zins. And still going strong. All “Estate” fruit from their Chiles Valley vineyards. Smell & taste black cherry compote, black pepper, allspice, blueberry pie, toasty barrel and vanilla from the oak. It’s a mouthful, and a fantastic value for Napa Valley red wine.  

Zin grapes come from Green & Red’s 3 “Estate” vineyards in Chiles Valley (“Chiles Mill,” “Tip Top” and “Catacula”).

The Homeric Poem from which the front label drawing was created...
" broke out, babbling,
bubbling over their speedy black ship,green and red
it was sweet, it was fragrant,
its odor was divine.
Every sailor who saw it
was terrified.
a vine sprang up,
on each side,
to the very top of the sail.
And grapes, all over,
clung to it...

...They all jumped ship
into the sea, they jumped
into the divine sea.
They became dolphins."
