Winemaker Notes

Stunning gemstone magenta core and ruby rim. True on the nose to our hallmark Brown Estate bouquet of rose petals, lily of the valley, hibiscus flowers, Asian apple, and effervescent citrus followed by dried apricot and peach. Medium body with silky mouthfeel, the palate at first delivers a burst of ripe red fruits, heavy cream, and loads of cascading exotic spice, finishing with a surprise of subtle crushed black pepper. Seamlessly integrated, elegant, and engaging. Drink now through 2022 to experience ripe fresh fruit, thereafter for a less fruity, earthier experience.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Deep, fully stated, rich and somewhat juicy at one and the same time, this outgoing effort will be too ripe for some but is bound to be appreciated by those who enjoy the expansive, extracted style of Zinfandel. Its oak and light cedary notes add to its range, and its moderate tannins supply both solidity and more than a few years of sure ageworthiness. Be sure to partner it with foods such as long-cooked pork shoulder in savory sauces or a garlicladen leg of lamb.

An excellent Napa Valley Zinfandel, the 2014 Brown Estate offers pinpoint ripe berries, a shading of sweet oak, and well-choreographed ripe tannins. The wine's palate generosity makes it a delicious pairing with BBQ pork ribs. (Tasted: February 25, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Plump and well-structured, with cherry and smoky anise aromas and zesty black raspberry, tarragon and spice flavors. Drink now through 2024.

Brown Estate, California
Brown Estate Winemaker, David Brown Winery Image

In 1980, the family acquired land in the hills east of Rutherford in the Napa Valley. They were farmers first, and farmers they remain. In 1995 they decided on the strength of the fruit to make wine under their own label. The following year the family produced the first vintage of zinfandel, and along the way we have added Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Petite Sirah, and the occasional dessert wine.

In 2010 the Brown family celebrated thirty years in the Napa Valley and Brown Estate's fifteenth crush. Over the years the farming philosophy has not changed: Their fifty acres of vineyards are planted amidst 450 acres of roughneck wilderness that they strive to tend rather than tame – from the occasional inconvenient honeybee hive in the winery to the prickly star thistles in the vineyards that are a part of their ecosystem.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
