"Give this several hours in a decanter and the buxom richness of sweet fruit and the tart elements of its acidity will merge. It’s a rustic zin, heady and firm, to enjoy now with grilled quail or to stash away in the cellar for ten years. (2,432 cases)"

Wine Spectator 88
"Briary and well-focused, with a rustic core, paired with notes of cherry, pomegranate and spicy grilled herbs. Finishes with dry tannins. Drink now through 2022. 2,432 cases made. –TF"

"A zesty blend from our three mountain vineyards at 1000 to 1700 ft overlooking Chiles Canyon. Dark cherry and raspberry flavors with tinges of bay leaf and clove. Accompanies wood grilled vegetables and marbled meats.

Green & Red Vineyard directs its farming practices to emphasize the particularity of the grapes from this many faceted piece of earth. Each vineyard receives different amounts of water determined by soil texture, depth and exposure to encourage root depth through varying soil strata. A no till native cover crop is mowed to minimize erosion. In row weeds are controlled mechanically and manually. Crown suckering, selective leaf pulling, and cluster thinning focus intensity in the fruit. Crop loads average 2-3 tons per acre

ZINFANDEL fruit is destemmed, not crushed. 3 days cold soak and 9 days in open top fermenters. Aged 13 months in 50% American oak (20% new) 50% French oak. " ~ Winery notes
