Solid SRH Offering

Clear medium ruby, ambering edges.  Nice cinnamon nutmeg spice over fairly simple fruit and a little turpentine.  Nice entry-level stuff from this label, lots going on and NOT to be confused with 30$ Monterey or Carneros or Edna entry level stuff.  This is not Meomi.

In the mouth, the roar of green tannin grows after an initial blast of ripe, supple black-cherry and a graphite streak.  Enough funk to keep a snob happy and definitely accessible enough in the *rich & round* category to keep an unsophisticated pinot-palate coming back.

2012 KEN BROWN Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Santa Barbara County  14.3
