The much talked about Gap's Crown Vineyard is one of the best grower vineyards today in Sonoma Coast. Tucked on the western hillside of Sonoma Mountain, this premier vineyard site is fanned by the cool ocean breezes that push through the Petaluma Gap and offers elevation up to 1200 feet above sea level. As a result, the growing season is long and balanced by the rocky soil which provides great drainage and thus, great fruit purity and intensity. This seductive 2016 offers "exotic perfumed notes, generous mouth-filling flavor and silken texture. The wine opens seductively with dark berry, cherry, sweet vanilla and toast notes that gain hints of molasses and baking spice with air. The concentrated palate delivers a vivid core of cherry pie and dark berry flavors caressed throughout the persistent finish by the silky tannins. 215 cases were produced.
