Tasting Notes

True to its cool origins, the Gap’s Crown Pinot Noir is graceful and complex, with layers of pomegranate, cranberry and blood orange notes backed by coastal minerality and hibiscus tea leaf. 

Located in the rolling foothills of Sonoma Mountain, the vineyard is nestled within the Petaluma Gap and benefits from cool air breezing in from the coast. The entire vineyard is 138 acres in total, ranging in elevation from 300 to 840 feet above sea level on rocky, well-drained soils. Its Pinot Noir rarely faces difficulty ripening, as many of the vines are above the fog line and are protected from too-ferocious wind gusts, and as a result, the Gap’s Crown name has continued to rise in acclaim in recent years.
