Description

"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
