Outer quote mark Coming from steep, rocky soils on the Sonoma Coast, the 2014 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard was brought up in 25% new French oak, 16% concrete and the rest in old barrels. All of the Pinot Noirs here go into barrel dry and see malolactic fermentation in barrel. This fabulous beauty gives up notes of black cherries, spring flowers, violets and spice in a medium-bodied, ultra-pure, seamless and elegant package that will benefit from short term cellaring and then cruise for a decade on its impeccable balance.

Outer quote mark The 2014 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown is pretty, silky and polished, even if it is lacking a touch of depth through the middle. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange and sweet floral notes give the 2014 its gracious, mid-weight personality. Bright chalk and minty notes add aromatic intrigue as the wine opens up with time. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Supple and generous, with ripe plum and blackberry flavors, this is aromatic and delicate, enticingly friendly and easy to drink, ending with fine-grained tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2016)
