2014 Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir
2014 Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast
VINEYARD: This picturesque vineyard has quickly risen to the top echelon of Sonoma Coast Vineyards and is highly sought after by winemakers all over California. It is located in the cool, windy Petaluma Gap, at the foothills of Sonoma Mountain east of Rohnert Park, and offers a variety of soil types at elevations ranging from 300 to 800 feet above sea level. Steep slopes and rocky soils create vine stress that yields rich, concentrated, structured wines.
 
TASTING NOTES: An elegant bouquet of ground cloves, allspice and savory dried herbs lead to complex layers of dried flowers, vanilla, blood orange, cranberry and cherry on the palate. Smooth yet well-structured tannins make this an age-worthy wine you can enjoy now or hold onto for years to come.

The Corkscrewer Report
 
“Color of wine is a majestic ruby and sets the stage for a wine of estimable majesty. Aromatically, there’s faint suggestions of dried rose, red cherry and ripe strawberry. On the palate, added notes of tea and allspice emerge within layers of luscious texture. Gripping, powerful tannins meet assertive acidity, and the wine’s excellent balance and marvelous complexity leave an imprint on our sense memory. This is a weighty Pinot Noir, one of substantial depth. Gets more fascinating with every sip. Cerebral and stately, dignified and true—a real standout in the Gary Farrell lineup.” ” — Spring 2017

CA Grapevine
 
“Medium-light to medium ruby; fragrant, raspberry and cranberry fruit aroma with hints of rose petals, clove, and black tea; medium to medium-full body; tight, herbal, red fruit flavors with bright acidity, a hint of cola, and some rough edges on the finish; medium tannin; lingering aftertaste. Opened and developed with airing in the glass, suggesting the benefit from several more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended.” — March 2017
