WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Z. Alexander Brown Cabernet Sauvignon unfolds with rich aromas of black cherry, mocha and sweet toasted oak notes. Soft, mid-palate tannins frame this full-bodied, juicy wine with mouth-filling flavors of black cherry and milk chocolate. Smooth and balanced, an elegant finesse defines the long and lingering finish. Winemaker, John Killebrew

VINTAGE

2018 was a fine year for growing great wine grapes. A cool start to the season brought on slow, even ripening. Warm days followed with very few heat spikes allowing the grapes to ripen while maintaining bright, fresh and clean fruit flavors, balanced with mature, well-developed tannin structure.  An idyllic growing season produced a delicious, layered and balanced wine.

WINEMAKING

Throughout the growing season, winemaker John Killebrew visited each vineyard block regularly. Picking decisions are based on winemaker evaluation, vineyard condition, and proper flavor ripeness.  The grapes are picked in the cool of the morning and slowly warmed to fermentation temperatures.  Early extraction with multiple pump-overs promotes great color and deep, smooth tannins.  The wine then completes malolactic fermentation before blending.  Complimentary oak styles are chosen to enhance the wine’s aroma, flavor and texture.

About Z. Alexander Brown Winery

Zac Brown has always been a man on a journey. Most know him for his music, yet his artistry and creative spirit are without boundaries. No matter where the adventure takes him, Zac has always remained downhome and truthful to his roots. His lifelong connection to the land and passion for bringing music, food, and people together was a natural path to wine.

John Killebrew, who grew up in California, developed a love for nature, gardening, cooking, and music at an early age. Though he and Zac grew up on opposite ends of the country, distance did not stop them from sharing a common passion and respect for the land.

As a winemaker, John is able to tap into his desire to make things with his own hands, stay immersed in nature, and find each season’s expression through the vines. Z. Alexander Brown is the reward of this relentless commitment and partnership with Zac to create bold “uncaged” wines rooted in the heart of California wine country.
