We source Pinot noir from the windswept appellations along the rugged Sonoma Coast, as well as the cool Russian River Valley, where this varietal develops its finest expression. Each of our acclaimed Pinot noir vineyards including Gap’s Crown, Sangiacomo, Walala and Rodger’s Creek, imparts its own distinctive character to the grapes. Our site-specific wines possess unique and discernable qualities, which could come from nowhere else on earth.

On the heels of the 2014’s #35 ranking on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines of 2016, the 2015 bottling continues to affirm that Gap’s Crown is one of the top California Pinot noir vineyards. Steep slopes and rocky soils cause significant vine stress, and the resulting wines are concentrated, with complex flavors and phenomenal structure. Moderate weather in 2015 allowed for optimal picking conditions, and flavors were bursting as the grapes matured. Dark cherry and boysenberry aromas lead to hints of baking spice and thyme. This is a complex wine that makes a stunning first impression. In 2015 we fermented 10% of the grapes whole-cluster, adding to the wine’s rich character and aromatic complexity.

This is a high-end, hillside vineyard  that has established itself as a premium source for top rated Pinot noir and Chardonnay wines vintage after vintage.
