The Brown Estate label was officially established in 1996 with the first bottling of Brown Zin. In January 2000 the first three vintages were presented at the annual ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates & Producers) Grand Tasting in San Francisco. In 2021, the estate will be bottling their 25th vintage!
Chaos Theory began as a one-off blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel that David created for our first participation in the annual Premiere Napa Valley trade auction. It made such a splash he went back to the cellar to dial in the details so we could make it a permanent part of our lineup. Over the years this proprietary red has become a shape-shifter, each vintage its own unique blend. Such is our journey through the world of wine — a constant adventure that reminds us year in and year out that no matter how random or chaotic things may seem, amidst the mayhem there is reason, if not always rhyme.
