From the Winemaker:
Gap’s Crown vineyard is owned and managed by Gap’s Crown, LLC and is located in the Petaluma Wind Gap. Kosta Browne Winery has purchased Gap’s Crown Pinot Noir grapes since 2006, and now enjoys a long term lease of 37 planted acres. “It has been the backbone of our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir program and contributed to our 2009 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir being awarded Wine Spectator’s #1 Wine of the Year in 2011,” says Michael Browne, founder of Kosta Browne Winery. Their viticulture is second to none, producing some of the finest grapes in Sonoma County.
Wild flowers, cherry and huckleberry are followed by truffles and baking chocolate.
On the palate:
Precise and textured with chocolate cherry and briary fruit on the front palate. Notes of orange flower and fennel seed define a long and smooth finish.
