Highly acclaimed winemaker Jeff Gaffner's "Fighting Brothers" Sonoma Coast Pinot is superb! Jeff's Saxon Brown-label wines showcase his extraordinary ability to bring out the best in Pinot Noir. This wine is extremely well-balanced, a delight to the taste buds, and built to last for many more years!
Our Fighting Brothers Pinot Noir is a blend of three renowned Sonoma Coast vineyards: Gap’s Crown, Roberts Road and Glass House. Individually all three offer ideal Pinot-growing terroir and impeccable farming. Together they produce a wine of extraordinary depth and complexity, displaying the site synergy celebrated in our line of Fighting Brothers vineyard blends. Fighting Brothers is named for my two sons, who’ve managed to blend their many differences into something approaching harmony.
Our Fighting Brothers Pinot Noir was harvested in the early morning and transported immediately to the winery, where the grapes were de-stemmed into small open top tanks for three days of cold soak at approximately 45F. After the must warmed and started fermentation, we inoculated with a low rate of RC212 Burgundian yeast, punching down three to five times daily. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was pressed to 30% new French oak for a total of 11 months in barrel. The wine was bottled unfined.
