The 2013 vintage marks Brown Estate’s 10th anniversary bottling of Chaos Theory. We commemorate this milestone by standardizing the “matrix code” label that has graced our screen-printed DTC-only magnum bottles for three years running. Conceived by winegrower David Brown as an homage to the topsy-turvy but always triumphant nature of his perennial experiences as both farmer and winemaker, the “new” Chaos label was designed in-house and has proven a crowdpleaser among our consumers, giving them yet another reason to reach for, talk about, and fall in love with Chaos. The wine and its source and production philosophy remain entirely unchanged. In vino, veritas – in chaos, order! Chaos Theory continues to echo 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 there is method and meaning to all that we do and experience. Simply put, all’s well that ends well! Once in your glass our 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 a hint of minerality. Mouthfeel is dense, rich, and decadent with loads of luscious fruit, vanillin, and cascading spice. Drink now through 2023.
