2013 Green & Red "Tip Top Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel
Review Date: 07-20-2016
We visited Green and Red during our K&L trip to Napa in May and it was outstanding and memorable. Driving up the mountain to the vineyard, we were treated to spectacular views, and the fruit for this "Tip Top" Zinfandel comes from their very highest plantings, at 1,700 feet. This Zinfandel is spicy and earthy, while retaining intriguing and elegant flavors of ripe cherries and fresh raspberries. Well balanced with great acidity. Highly recommended!

2014 White Rock Napa Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 07-12-2016
One of the highlights of our recent Napa trip, and one of my personal favorites, was White Rock Vineyards, nestled in the southern foothills of the Stags Leap range. First, we tasted the 2014 White Rock Napa Valley Chardonnay, which is grown in the lowest and coldest area of the vineyard, all barrel fermented, and aged for 11 months on the lees in French oak. The result is a clean, crisp and well-balanced wine with great acid structure and a wonderful intensity—all in a lean and focused package with no extra flab whatsoever. The Chardonnay has notes of Granny Smith apple, orange peel and Meyer lemon. This is the perfect Chardonnay to take on a picnic, or for a lazy afternoon at the beach. Needless to say, I plan on doing both!
