Saxon Brown Zinfandel Stonewall 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The tiny Stonewall Block of Sonoma’s Parmelee-Hill Vineyard is contiguous with the famed Durell Vineyard and shares the same vineyard management. Situated at the base of Sonoma Mountain, the Stonewall Block’s cool climate and rocky, well-drained soils produce moderate yields of intensely rich and vibrant Zinfandel. This wine has an opulent nose of allspice, light cedar, ripe plum and cherry, with even more bright forward fruit than in any of the previous vintages. Only 280 cases produced.

Thank you for choosing Saxon Brown Wines. We are a small, Sonoma Valley winery, owned and operated by my wife and I and our two boys. We source grapes from our family's century-old Casa Santinamaria Vineyard as well as from a handful of very special vineyard sites in Sonoma and Napa. Saxon Brown exists because I love making wine. I love the art of it, the science of it and, most of all, the tradition of it. I continue to be fascinated by wine's capacity for reflecting the subtlest of influences from the vineyard environment to the winemaker's touch. Our grapes are nurtured in the vineyard throughout the year and hand harvested based upon touch, smell, taste and look -- not numbers. In the cellar, we emphasize gentle handling, slow fermentations and (except in the case of our youthfully exuberant Semillon) lengthy aging to produce Zinfandel, Syrah and Pinot Noir that are unique for their elegance and longevity. We hope you enjoy our site and look forward to the chance to meet and clink glasses with you personally. Jeff Gaffner SAXON BROWN WINES Read less
