Green and Red Zinfandel Chile Mill Vineyard Chiles Canyon Napa 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Offering up a sweeter, spicier nose than the basic Chiles Valley bottling, this is more floral and high toned, with crushed mineral and juniper accents framing gorgeous raspberry and plum flavors topped with a whisper of oak smoke. Light, zesty and fresh on the palate, this delivers lots of transparent raspberry fruit framed with subtle herbal accents. It’s so clean fresh and pure if a little a simple, and finishes with great persistence to the red berry fruit. Happy wine. 91pts

%5 each Petite Sirah and Syrah Cool and autumnal on the nose with ripe, slightly tarry fruit, huge forest floor aromas strong with dry pine needles. Bight on entry and old school on the palate this shows lovely depth of floral tones in the mouth framing small dark berry fruit that shows a whisper of herb along with all the big fruit. Softly tannic and with a nice dark hint of minerality on the finish, this is polished rich and well integrated, and so pure on the finish, which shows a little licorice and a little Xmas cinnamon spice. Gutsy, powerful but not over ripe.
