Brown Estate Chaos Theory / Petite Sirah, Merlot & Zinfandel Blend
Napa Valley / California 2018 (750 ml)
Chaos Theory began as a one-off blend created for Brown's first participation in the annual Premiere Napa Valley trade auction. Over the years this proprietary blend has become a shape-shifter, each vintage its own unique blend.
The 2018 is 50% Napa Valley petite sirah, 40% Napa Valley merlot and 10% Sierra Foothills zinfandel. The nose shows passionfruit, persimmon, guava, and gardenia. On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied and plush, with well-balanced acid, smooth tannins and a lingering finish.
Brown Estate Vineyards is the first and only Black-owned estate winery in California's Napa Valley, and is best known as one of that region's most well-regarded zinfandel producers. In addition to zinfandel, Brown Estate produces cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, and petite sirah.
