Our 2016 bottling of the Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot noir continues to affirm this vineyard as one of the brightest stars in California. After the 2014’s #35 ranking on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines of 2016, and the 2015’s 95-point score from Robert Parker, the 2016 follows strongly with robust flavors and excellent structure. Much of this wine’s concentration derives from the site’s steep slopes and rocky soils, complemented by severe drought conditions and the tiny berries that resulted. The wine’s signature dark cherry aroma is enhanced by 10% whole cluster fermentation, adding depth and texture for a long complex finish.

93 Points International Wine Report
The 2016 Gap's Crown Pinot Noir begins with cherry cola and raspberry cordial aromatics that mingle with wi stone. The palate is silky smooth, showing ripe red cherry, guava purée and blood orange flavors. The freshnes intensity of this wine is gorgeous. Enjoy this over the next decade or so.

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Juicy and velvety in texture, this wine shows a wealth of full-bodied oak and tannin up front that settles into lovely characteristics of rose petal, strawberry, rhubarb and forest floor. The finish is lengthy and robust.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard opens with pronounced notions of Black Forest cake, blackberry compote and red plums with nuances of lilacs, underbrush, camphor and oolong tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers concentrated black fruit flavors with a velvety texture and just enough freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note
