Nicely packed, with energetic flavors of blackberry cobbler, blueberry paste and boysenberry coulis, carried by a brambly structure and pushed by anise and ganache accents on the finish. Shows solid grip and should do well with cellaring. This has added some weight since the barrel tasting. Best from 2017 through 2022. (JM)
A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2012 Brown hits the palate with serious intensity and slightly rough contours that are going to need time to settle down. The high presence of Merlot (70%) and pushed, ripe style add to the wine's considerable personality. A rush of black cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, licorice and incense leaves a positive last impression. The 2012 is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)
This wine is dark, textured and full of ripe fruit. Not yet balanced, it still shows more wood than fruit, but all elements are coming together to give a full-bodied, wood-aged wine. Drink from 2020. (RV)
Another successful wine for this vintage, Chateau Brown’s 2012 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. The wine shows serious power, dense color and lots of red and black fruits, some smoke and earth, burning embers and a spicy, medium-bodied finish. Drink it over the next 12-16 years. (RP)
