IWR, Owen Bargreen
"The wine opens with a bouquet of cola, black cherry, wild blackberry and forest floor. The palate is plush, revealing flavors reminiscent of black tea, black cherry, cola, cigar box and a marvelous salinity. The wine has wonderful tension, length and weight. The long finish impresses."

Gap’s Crown Vineyard
Perched on a hillside in the direct path of steady winds from the Pacific Ocean.

Petaluma Gap
A break in the coastal range at Bodega Bay that lets in fog and cool air

Sonoma Coast Appellation
Heavy fog and strong winds tempered by bright afternoon sunshine.

Deep garnet in color. Spicy, dark aroma laced with 5 spice, boysenberry, cola, and black pepper. There is an earthy tone on the palate with very effusive dark berry flavor. Powerful and extracted on the palate, but unctuous and with very refined tannin. Lengthy finish with warm spicy oak tones throughout.

Gap’s Crown Vineyard is located in the heart of the Petaluma Gap area of the Sonoma Coast Appellation. Gentle slopes and rocky soils produce wines of great depth and richness.

Vintage NotesThe 2015 growing season delivered another great vintage. A mild winter with a dry, warm March caused early bud break. Colder temperatures and light rain in late spring stunted cluster development which ultimately led to smaller grape clusters and berries. Summer temperatures were mild and ripening progressed slowly and steadily with intense flavors developing early. This vintage exhibits concentrated aromatics and deep color.
