Critic Review
Wine Enthusiast, Tom Capo
"Subtle aromas of black cherry, fresh tea leaf and mushroom provide a softer introduction to a wine that is explosively powerful on the palate, with saturated flavors of berry compote, cherry lollipop, orange blossom and fried shiitake mushroom. The finish is long and acid driven, with a lovely balance of black tea emerging over time."

The 2021 vintage of Gap's Crown delivers fresh, pure aromas of pomegranate, cherry, and lifted floral notes. Black cherry and mulberry flavors combine with dark tea and damp earth on the palate. Juicy, open-knit tannin is underscored by serious depth and a racy mineral edge through 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 NotesThe alluring 2021 vintage is remarkable for its low yields, which resulted in an extra degree of concentration in our wines. In a second year of drought, the vines grew quickly in the warm spring weather while our team judiciously managed watering block by block. By summer, the vines had set a lighter than average crop, and cooler weather in August allowed time for vineyard passes to finetune the fruit load and manage the canopy. After a smooth harvest season, we are excited about the flavor-packed 2021's.
