The Story: In 1980 the Brown family (parents) purchased an abandoned ranch in the eastern hills of the Napa Valley. They rehabilitated the crumbling homestead and planted viniferous grapes — which for a decade we farmed and sold to local winemakers. In 1995 “the kids” decided to make their own wine…
They established the Brown Estate label officially in 1996 when they harvested what would become their first bottling of Brown Zin. In January 2000 they debuted the first three vintages at the annual ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates & Producers) Grand Tasting in San Francisco. Fast forward to August 2021… when they bottled their 25th vintage. Time flies…

Aromas of kumquat, exotic spice, wild strawberries, raspberries, and Ranier cherry. Time in glass reveals guava nectar, orange creamsicle, bay laurel, and traces of smoked meat, saddle, and graphite. Medium body, silky mouthfeel, beautifully integrated with an endless finish.
Winery Notes: “And just like that we present vintage no. 26 of our flagship Napa Valley Zinfandel, having regrettably skipped our milestone vintage no. 25 due to 2020 wildfire impacts. The wine offers a garnet core, and ruby rim. On the nose, you’ll experience the hallmark characteristics of dried hibiscus flowers and rose petals, Asian spice, violets, cedar, vanilla-allspice-ginger spice-box, and subtle cedar. On the palate, you’ll encounter a medium body, soft, smooth, and supple with a lush, creamy mouthfeel. The wine should drink well now through 2035+.”
