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 of good years ahead of it. Enjoy the thrill ride anytime through 2023.
