Brown Estate Zinfandel Wine 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our Napa Valley Zinfandel historically has borne the responsibility of being the ultimate representative of our four zinfandel blocks – the best of the best of our Brown Estate terroir integrated into one stellar wine. As such, it is the most challenging zin we produce because it requires commingling of four distinct “personalities” into one well-adjusted protagonist. The fact that no single vineyard’s qualities dominate here is a testament to the integration, fluidity, and perpetual motion – the balancing act! – that is Brown Estate itself. Deeper, darker and richer than previous vintages, this 2012 bottling is marked by ripe Bing cherry and big briery black fruit characteristics. Exotic spice and subtle citrus integrate with vibrant acidity to balance out this wine’s lush and rich juiciness. Excellent palate weight with a silky, long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2022." -Winery

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
