Tasting Notes

This lively Pinot Noir has a dark cherry color. The nose is packed with layers of freshly picked cranberry, lavender sprig, and thyme. There are hints of white pepper, which is characteristic of this site.  The palate is smooth and extremely long, finishing with flavors of cola and dark cherry. The tannins are fine and will give this wine great freshness and life over the coming years.

Notes from Winemaker

Gap???s Crown benefits from unique rocky soils and excellent drainage, leading to fantastic conditions for Pinot Noir. We picked at 2am to ensure the grapes were naturally cold when it came to the cellar. The fruit was destemmed and underwent a five-day cold-soak prior to fermentation. The wine was then pressed into French oak barrels (25% new) where it stayed for 15 months before being racked and bottled unfiltered in March of 2017
