2014 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2014 Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

This vineyard sits just above Sangiacomo Vineyard on a hillside and is considered in the highest echelon of California Pinot noir vineyards. Gap’s Crown Vineyard continues to impress us as winemakers, with each block offering exceptional and distinctive qualities that make blending the final wine a fun and rewarding experience. For the 2014 vintage, we just keep saying “wow,” and we think you will too, once you taste the wine. Dark cherry and blackberry aromas lead to hints of baking spice and thyme. It makes a stunning first impression with its explosive aromatics, plush texture and bold structure. In 2014, we fermented 10% of the grapes whole-cluster adding to the wine’s rich character and aromatic complexity.
