2015 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. First planted in 2002, Gap’s Crown includes 106 acres of Pinot Noir and 32 acres of Chardonnay. It is located in the cool, windy Petaluma Gap in southwest Sonoma County where the climate is highly influenced by the effects of the coastal fog from the Pacific Ocean. Spanning the foothills of Sonoma Mountain, the vineyard offers a variety of soil types at elevations of 300 to 800 feet above sea level, with steep hillsides to promote natural airflow and soil drainage. Steep slopes and rocky soils create vine stress that yields rich, concentrated, structured wines. Our Gap’s Crown Pinot Noir is a blend of clones 828 and 667. The 828 clone, with its larger berries and slightly thicker skin, contributes red fruit and structure to the blend, while the 667 clone’s smaller clusters and berries provide dark fruit sexiness and luscious texture
 
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.
