Napa Valley Zinfandel 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Blended from four distinct vineyard blocks on our estate property, our 2009 Napa zin represents the best of the best Brown terroir. Very evident in this wine is the complex and layered Chiles Valley vineyard component, with its ripe and succulent ruby red grapefruit, fleshy black fruit, and cascade of aromas beginning with Damask rose-hibiscus, followed by exotic spice box, leading to creamy vanilla, and ending with a zippy spicy crushed black and white pepper. Mouth feel is luxurious, long and deep, yet possesses clear structural integrity reflecting the power and extreme extraction of the 2009 growing season. Drink now through 2020.

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

Brown Estate is known for their Zinfandel, and have devoted over half their acreage to it. Light raspberry flavors on the nose, with cool bramble flavors, structured core and firm acids for a zin, before a finessed finish, with notes of chocolate and cinnamon. Very balanced for a zinfandel.

Brown Estate is known for their Zinfandel, and have devoted over half their acreage to it. This wine has rosemary on the nose and is rich and spicy throughout. There's a meaty core, and this is the biggest zinfandel Brown does. Finishes on blueberry and cherry with a nice oak flavor.

Brown Estate is known for their Zinfandel, and have devoted over half their acreage to it. This is a blend of four blocks of zinfandel and its richer and more striking than the rosemary zin from the same winery. Light and floral nose with hints of rose petals and lilacs. Finishes on cedar and cinnamon.
