Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 90.5 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 6 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by tomherer on 12/29/2012 & rated 91 points: My first SB wine; definitely not my last. Delicious and elegant. Classic Sonoma zin profile. Plum, cherry, mocha, licorice, cinnamon. Tannins are integrated up front, but get brambly on the medium finish. The slightest bit of bricking around the edges, but no mature flavors. Recommended for at least the next year. (600 views)
 Tasted by AMV8_79 on 2/2/2012 & rated 89 points: subtle nose, jammy finish. good zin for a non zin fan. (725 views)

Saxon-Brown

Producer website
Founded in 1997 by winemaker Jeff Gaffner, the winery's cornerstone is its 100-year-old Casa Santinamaria Vineyard in Sonoma, a "field blend" vineyard that, at a half ton an acre, defines "low-yielding". Old vine Zinfandel (with its field-mates Petite Sirah, Carignane, Alicante Bouschet and Mataro) and Semillon come from this historic parcel. Pinot Noir and Syrah are sourced from small vineyards throughout Sonoma County. Total production is fewer than 2,000 cases, allowing Jeff to fulfill his mantra: "Winemaking must consume you, or your wines may not be worth consuming."

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
