Winemaker Notes

This vintage expresses the uppermost mountain vineyard grown at 1700 ft above the Pacific. Dark cherry and raspberry aromas spiced with bay laurel and the surrounding chaparral.

Chiles Mill is the lowest vineyard on the Heminway estate, tucked in next to the winery at 1,000 to 1,200 feet. Unlike other blocks on the estate, it has a warmer, northwestern exposure, which ripened this lush and fragrant zin in 2012. Its silken richness and touches of sweetness are balanced by the crisp line of tannins, funneling the fruit along a path laced with savory black mushroom flavors. Leave this in a decanter for an hour or two and it will become a juicy and delicious match for roast eggplant stuffed with veal. Best Buy

Green & Red, California
Green & Red Vineyard, named for its red iron soils veined with green serpentine, is located in the steep hills on the east side of Napa Valley. The planting was started in 1972 on ground originally in vineyards in the 1890’s. The vineyards are a small percentage of the 200-acre property, which ranges in elevation from 900 to 2,000 feet. Our separate vineyards are at different elevations with different exposures.

Green & Red Vineyard directs its farming practices to emphasize the particularity of the grapes from this many faceted piece of earth. Each vineyard receives different amounts of water determined by soil texture, depth and exposure encouraging root depth through varying soil strata. A no till native cover crop is mowed minimizing erosion. In row weeds are controlled mechanically and manually. The vines are cropped to 3 tons to the acre. Selective leaf pulling and cluster thinning focus intensity in the fruit.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
