Gap's Crown Vineyard

2014 Sonoma Coast

The more this spectacular vineyard matures, the more dramatic its wines become. Though somewhat brooding at first, the nose quickly opens up to reveal mesmerizing layers of dark chocolate, damp earth, porcini mushroom, cherry, plum and dried cranberry. On the palate, this mix of savory and sweet elements continues, gaining depth and momentum as the wine reveals itself in evermore-nuanced layers. Gliding to a long, flowing conclusion, the dense tannins and robust structure turn silky and smooth, providing a memorable finish.

    “Run by noted vineyard and winery owner Bill Price, Patz & Hall Winery utilizes fruit from the well-known Gap’s Crown Vineyard in the foothills of Sonoma Mountain above the Petaluma Wind Gap. The 2014 Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown Vineyard has a deep ruby/purple color, plenty of forest floor, underbrush, pomegranate, red and black cherries, savory cola and other earthy notes. Cocoa is also present in this medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, rich wine that should age nicely for up to 8-10 years. Production is about 950 cases. 2016 – 2026” - Robert Parker
