Green & Red ‘Chiles Canyon’ Zinfandel 2009
As Autumn sets in, I begin to enjoy fuller bodied reds. While I don’t often choose Zinfandel, this is definitely one that makes my cut. Green and Red has been producing wines based on Zinfandel and Syrah since the early 1970‘s – a time when California wines were coming into their own as winemakers were striving to reach the level of their European counterparts. Jay Heminway set up shop in the hilly northeastern corner of Napa and began producing wine on very steep terraces. This Zin is sourced from their three mountain vineyards about 1800ft high and has notes of cherry and raspberry with a touch of spice, sage, and clove. Enjoy the cooler evenings, kick back, pull the cork on this wine and watch the leaves turn.

I love white wines from Italy, as they are so diverse and therefore there’s so much to explore. When you’ve focused and exhausted wine of one region just move to the next and you’ll find a whole new group of grapes and styles. This wine hails from Campania, home of Mt Vesuvius among its hundreds of other volcanoes. The grape (Greco di Tufo) is believed to have been brought to Italy by the Pelasgians people originally from Thessaly, greece (hence the name: Greco). It is grown at high elevation in volcanic soil. The result is an intense nose of peach, apricot and almond and mellow complexity on the palate. Great with seafood, salads or pasta.
