Critic Review
Robert Parker Wine Advocate, Erin Brooks
"The 2018 Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown Vineyard has open-knit aromas of cranberry sauce, red berry jam and baked rhubarb with accents of Earl Grey tea leaves, dusty earth and spices. The medium-bodied palate is silky and lifted with bright, spicy fruits and juicy acidity carrying the spicy finish."

afternoon sunshine.

The Gap’s Crown Pinot Noir is deep, yet vibrant garnet in color with effusive aromas of ripe strawberry and black cherry. Concentrated on the palate, with flavors 5-spice, intense dark berry fruit, and hints of earthiness. This is a precise and focused wine with a rich, dense tannin and lively acidity on the finish.

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

Vintage NotesFollowing a series of warm, early harvests, this year’s growing season returned to a slower rhythm, allowing grapes to ripen gently with deep flavors. Our growers spent the summer and fall manicuring the vine canopies to provide the grapes enough shade from the sun while also preparing adequate airflow to deter mold. When Mother Nature did throw a couple of unpredictable systems at us, we were able to weather the storms and harvest exceptional fruit!
