As evidenced by their clear and straightforward web site, the folks behind Green & Red let their great Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc do their talking. They don't need to spend time and money on big marketing projects or fancy web design, they just make really good wine. Pam & Jay Heminway founded Green & Red in 1977 so they've had time to figure out how to get the best from their mountain fruit and at the same time gain dedicated fans who have savored their wines for decades. This 2012 bottling from their Tip Top Vineyard, the very top of their mountain estate which sits at 1,700 feet above sea level, always rises to the top of everyone's favorite Zin. It was aged for 14 months in 70% American oak (20% new) and 30% French oak which seems to be the right amount of time to add texture without any oaky flavor. Concentrated aromas of black cherry and sweet raspberry spring from the nose and flow onto the full, juicy, creamy and spicy palate. It's a testament to the winemaking that with all that intense mountain fruit the wine isn't dense or overextracted, it almost feels light on its feet for a Zin and shows great balance. The finish is long with lightly sweet tannins and an appealing, not overbearing, viscosity. It's a wonderful example of the abundant 2012 vintage and should have a nice little life ahead of it.

2013 Nalle Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley, CA Thumbnail red wine sweet_1 intense_4 body_4 wood_1 farm_s
2013 Nalle Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, CA

Call 415-288-0470 for help with your order.
10% case discount on 12 or more bottles, any combination. Use promo code "12plus".


This 2013 Nalle Zinfandel is a actually a blend of 88% Zinfandel, 8% Petite Sirah and 4% Carignan. As Doug Nalle explains, "it was fermented in open top tanks, transferred immediately to new to 5 year old French oak and aged 11 months with frequent racking to clarify. The wine is a field blend of two dry farmed vineyards in Dry Creek Valley: Our 88 year old Henderlong Estate and the 20 year old Bernier-Sibary." And like all Nalle Zinfandels it is one of the lowest in alcohol percentage, 13.6%, for the varietal, making it go down a little easier (and helping to avoid feeling it the next day.) That is just one of the reasons why we love Nalle Zinfandels. The other is that the wines are always so well balanced with the optimal blend of fruit to oak to structure with present but well integrated tannins, which makes the wines very age-worthy, more so than the majority of Zinfandels on the market. The wines show polish and elegance upon release and only get better from there. Here is how the Nalles describe this 2013 effort, "This wine is a step back in California time with dusty Dry Creek roads, candied violets, and potpourri on the nose, followed by cherry pie, molasses, and orange rind on the palate. It explodes with fresh, ripe (but not too ripe), Zinberry fruit from the warm '13 harvest. The integrated oak/tannin mouth-feel, long silky texture, Cali-Itali-Frenchie-goodness-styled craftsmanship, and bitchin' finish. A radical Zin like this puts the "fun" back into ZinFUNdel. We say pair this wine with some rebel foie gras or Wade's foraged mushroom risotto. *Wine geek note: optimum drinking dates are 2016-2020 or decant for earlier drinking."
