San Francisco Int'l Wine Competition gold medal winner. A powerful, rich wine that has withstood the cold

Gap's Crown Vineyard is a new AVA in Sonoma County known as Petaluma Gap and is one of the coolest vineyards we own. The coolness packs the fruit with flavor and tannin. The 2018 grape harvest was excellent in both quantity and quality. Rich aromas of savory with wonderful flavors of blackberry, Earl Gray tea and gingerbread. A wine suitable for long-term aging. Aged for 15 months in French oak barrels (51% new).

With vines specifically planted to withstand the morning fog and powerful winds, our Gap's Crown Pinot is rich and boisterous. One of our best candidates for long-term cellaring, this pinot is full of savory notes that converge into mouthwatering black cherry, Earl Gray tea, and gingerbread.
