“Classic” 96 Points
“The 2013 Ken Brown Rita’s Crown offers an alluring bouquet of dried cherry, black fruit, maple and leather. A tour de force, this exquisite example of Pinot Noir from the highly pedigreed Santa Rita Hills appellation shows off waves of dark berries, black plum, dried tea leaves, cranberry, hints of toasty oak and then culminates in a 40 second finish. Although it already has a few years in the bottle, this is a youthful wine with plenty of delights ahead. Enjoy this thrill ride now through 2023.” - California Wine Advisors

Collectors who crave the notoriously scarce Sea Smoke Pinot Noir will adore this “Classic” 96 point, pre-‘Cult’ release sourced from the hillside vines that actually look down upon Sea Smoke’s prized vines! Ken Brown Pinot Noir Rita’s Crown vineyard 2013 features uber-complex dark red berry flavors, velvety texture, and harmonious balance that you’ll cherish. Boutique production was merely eleven barrels so RSVP directly to ensure you don't miss out!
