Purple fruit with cherry and raspberry character. Hints of violets on the nose. Full body that is very dense with defined layers. Agile and fresh with hints of salt.
Steep hillsides and a variety of clones help add diversity to this vineyard whose aspects were carefully planted to encourage even sunlight exposure during the final stages of fruit ripening. The Sonoma Coast influence is key for Gap’s Crown – located in the Petaluma Gap where late-season fog becomes trapped and takes longer to burn off. The fruit is allowed to hang a little longer creating more balanced and evolved flavors.
