Brown 2013 Chaos Theory Red Blend, Napa Valley


Brown 2013 Chaos Theory Red Blend, Napa Valley

The Story: Now in its tenth vintage, Chaos Theory began as a one-off blend of cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel that David Dappen created for the first participation in the annual Premiere Napa Valley trade auction. It made such a splash that he went back to the cellar to dial in the details so we could make it a permanent part of our lineup. Chaos Theory echoes our journey through the world of wine, consistently proving that the best is yet to come, there’s always something to look forward to, and no matter how random or chaotic things may seem amidst the mystery there is method and meaning to all that we do and experience. Simply put, all’s well that ends well!
Wine Notes: Once in your glass the 2013 Chaos envelops the bowl in a wash of dramatic royal purple surrounded by a delicate garnet rim. Its intense billowing fragrance begins with blue fruits then shifts markedly to red fruit and flowers – blueberry, mulberry, blackberry, then bing cherry, violet, and rose. Ripe fruit commingles with tart pomegranate and winter spice, further revealing sassafras root, subtle spearmint, and cherry cola with gravel, loam, and hint of minerality. Mouthfeel is dense, rich, and decadent with loads of luscious fruit, vanillin, and cascading spice. Drink now through 2023.
