2010 WALT "Gap's Crown" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
The picturesque Gap’s Crown vineyard is perched on a hillside. The site is in the direct path of the Petaluma Gap,
characterized by coastal fog and the cool, steady winds from the Pacific Ocean. This vineyard’s reputation has quickly ascended as one of the best in the Sonoma Coast appellation. Vineyard Manager, Mike Cybulski, and his dedicated team practice vine-by-vine farming to optimize the vine and fruit development throughout the growing season.
More than all other WALT Pinot Noirs, our Gap’s Crown is the most exuberant and muscular, a vibrant manifestation of the vineyard site. The 2010 WALT Gap’s Crown glows with a deep purple hue and its lavish blueberry and blackberry aromas jump from the glass. On the palate, the wine is dense with raspberry, chocolate, violets and brown spice. Truly an extroverted display of varietal character, expect the 2010 WALT “Gap’s Crown” Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir to remain unctuous for many years to come.
