Pinot Noir from the highly regarded Santa Rita Hills appellation (apparently the only east-west oriented valleys in California's central coast, Sea Smoke has attained something of a "mini cult" status, with all of the available the wines allocated to mailing list members, a select group of restaurants, and (possibly) a chosen group of wine stores. Botella is the "low end" bottling, but often in greater demand than its higher-priced siblings Southing and Ten.
According to winery notes, "the 2005 Sea Smoke Botella Pinot Noir expresses lovely,
elevated fruit tones with well balanced acidity and tannins. This wine is lively
on the palate, with a long crisp finish."
Here is a link to the winery's tasting notes
Winery pricing for the Botella has nearly doubled since its initial release. I don't have data for the 2001 vintage, but the 2002 vintage was offered for $25/bottle. The 2003 vintage was priced at $26/bottle, and the 2004 vintage sold for $28/bottle. For the 2005 vintage, the price jumped to $39/bottle, where it stayed for the 2006 vintage as well.
Keep in mind that this is winery pricing - because Sea Smoke wines are "highly allocated" (i.e., hard to buy directly from the winery), there has always been a strong secondary market in their wines, and it's not uncommon to see a bottle of Botella (regardless of vintage) fetch $100 or more from anyone who has them to sell.

Sea Smoke also bottles a "Southing" Pinot Noir, which sold for $49 from the winery for the 2006 vintage, and a "Ten" Pinot Noir (so named because it represents a blending of the ten clones in the estate vineyard) which sold for $79 from the winery for the 2006. These wines also see their prices double and triple when sold in secondary markets.
