GREEN & RED “Tip Top Vineyard” Zinfandel 2013

(Napa Valley, CA) $30

Many of the great zinfandel producers insist that zinfandel can be refined, even elegant. I’ve always been a little dubious. Except when it comes to the very best of the best zins. Green & Red is one. This wine is classy, pure tasting, and so vivid in flavor you feel like your taste buds just put on 3D glasses. More raspberryish than raspberries. Spicy to the hilt. Rich and yet restrained at the same time. The Tip Top Vineyard rests in serpentine-laced rock at 1700 feet above the Napa Valley. It takes a great site to produce zinfandels that can be considered beautiful. Tasting is believing. (14.9 % abv)
