Brown Estate Zinfandel Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Brown Estate Napa Valley Zinfandel Brilliant garnet color and romantic old world aromas make a dazzling impression in the glass. Tangerine blossoms, hibiscus flowers and layers of exotic Asian spices round out the nose. Fantastic depth and richness characterize decadent dark chocolate and deep black cherry flavors on the fleshy, velvety palate, also revealing subtle cedar, creme de cassis, and layers of cardamom, allspice andnutmeg. Fall in love for the first time all over again with this full-bodied, opulent, yet seamlessly integrated wine.This is a California Wine.

Brown Estate is a private family owned and operated estate winery tucked into the hills east of Rutherford in the Napa Valley. With a dream of owning a family farm, our parents put down roots in the Valley in 1980. Between 1985 and 1990 we planted a total of fifty acres of vineyards that include Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay. Through our first decade of farming the land, we sold all of our fruit to a variety of small local wineries. In 1996 we produced our first vintage of Zinfandel under the Brown Estate label, and subsequently have expanded production to include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, our Chaos Theory blend, and Petite Sirah. This year we celebrate our 30th year in the Valley and our fifteenth crush. As we consider these milestones, we take great pride in the fact that every aspect of our business remains under direct family control. Read less

Rose to purple in color with a fairly sharp color gradient. Wonderful aromas of strawberry and cherries on the nose balanced with hints of earthiness. Clean up front tastes with those dark cherries and spices up front but lingering throughout the palette. Very smooth and well balanced. (note: tasted after aeration from a Venturi)
