Saxon Brown Featured as "Small Production Wines that Leave Big Impression"

90 POINTS - "The 2005 Syrah Parmalee-Hill Vineyard "Camp Block" has plenty of expansive black currant and sweet cherry fruit intermixed with some Provencal herbs, new saddle leather, pepper, and spice. It is full-bodied, deep, with a broad, savory mouth texture. Drink it over the next 4-5 years." - Robert Parker

92 POINTS - 2005 Saxon Brown Parmelee Hill Vineyard, Sonoma Valley "This has excellent structure, density and focus, with a rich mix of wild berry and blueberry fruit, mineral, pebble, herb and sage, all well-proportioned, gaining complexity on the finish. Drink now through 2012." -James Laube

90 POINTS - 2005 Saxon Brown Flora Ranch Syrah, Chalk Hill "Vivid ruby-red, Smoky dark berry, tobacco and bacon fat aromas offer varietally accurate pungency and very good clarity. Peppery and sharply focused, with racy red and dark berry flavors, gentle tannins and good mineral lift. Leaves a strong floral pastille quality behind on the long, sappy finish. Very syrah."

90 POINTS - 2006 Saxon Brown Chardonnay Durell Vineyard, Sonoma Valley "...amazingly fruity and surprisingly well-balanced. It absolutely demands drinking"


Thank you for choosing Saxon Brown Wines. We are a small, Sonoma Valley winery, specializing in small bottlings of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah, Zinfandel and Semillon from a handful of very special vineyard sites in Sonoma and Napa. 

To me, winemaking is storytelling. A restrained and respectful hand in the cellar results in a more interesting, character-driven narrative in the bottle. Named for the willful herione of Jack London's Valley of the Moon (Sonoma Valley), Saxon Brown wines tells the stories of my favorite vineyard 'finds'.

Cheers!  Jeff
