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 Read more »

Warm red currant and black cherry fruit emerges with air and features a touch of tar and oily herbs with a sappy green wood stemminess.
