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
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
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."
