Recently featured in the Wine Spectator, the article highlights winemaker Jeff Gaffner, stating that he “exemplifies the modern winemaker, joined at the hip with his vines…”

An ancient vine field-blend which contains grapes that date back more than 100 years, the 2013 Saxon Brown “Fighting Brothers Cuvée” Zinfandel is simply remarkable.

In our experience with past vintages of this wine, there is never enough to meet demand. Fast action to grab some of this wine while available is advised.

A favorite among Zinfandel fans as well as fans of deep, rich luxurious red wines, Saxon Brown represents one of the finest Zinfandels produced in Sonoma County. Crafted by Jeff Gaffner, who is responsible for making the renowned 1996 Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cépages – Wine Spectator’s #1 wine of the year.

This completely inspiring, scrumptious Zinfandel ranks among some of Gaffner’s best wine creations.

Where to Buy

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate,

“The 2013 Zinfandel Fighting Brothers (15.5% alcohol) displays notes of Provençal garrigue, pepper, kirsch liqueur and black currants in a complex, intense style. This is very Mediterranean in character, but full-bodied, hedonistic, and just a total joy to smell, taste and appreciate. Drink it over the next 4-6 years.” 93 Points
