Tasting Notes
Dark and lush at first swirl, notes of black plum, cherry cola, and blackberries fill the glass. Ample layers of cedar, spice, tobacco leaf, and dried meats provide depth and intrigue. An array of fresh mushrooms, black tea, and violets complement the rustic profile. This wine is notably full-bodied, with a dense mid-palate that carries through to a persistent, lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
This picturesque vineyard has quickly risen to the top echelon of Sonoma County 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. Originally a part of the southern section of the Sonoma Coast AVA, the vineyard is now a part of the newly created Petaluma Gap AVA 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.
