“Hedonistic and flamboyant, with ripe red and black fruits, kirsch, vanilla and nutmeg, the palate fills the mouth with a warm cocoa powder and bramble burst. Robert Parker, from an earlier tasting (WA #223) confirms that this is; “a full-throttle, beautifully pure, rich, berry-scented, peppery, meaty Zinfandel, with loads of black fruits, good acidity, and outstanding purity. It is a serious Zinfandel to drink over the next 5-6 years.” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
Jeff launched Saxon Brown to focus on small single vineyard bottlings reflecting his preference for elegantly structured, well balanced and age worthy wines. Over time, Jeff expanded Saxon Brown’s vineyard-focus with small offerings from both established and emerging vineyard sites, including Durell, Gap’s Crown, Glass House and Roberts Road (Sonoma Coast), Hyde (Carneros-Napa), Green Acres (Carneros-Sonoma), Ferrington (Anderson Valley) and Rosella’s (Santa Lucia Highlands) vineyards. In addition to Saxon Brown, Jeff enjoys critical acclaim as consulting winemaker for artisan labels including Xtant (Napa Valley), Stephanie by Hestan (Napa Valley), Black Kite Cellars (Anderson Valley) and Ram’s Gate Winery (Carneros).
