Gap’s Crown is considered by many to be one of the best representations of what the Petaluma Gap AVA, the southern component of Sonoma Coast, is all about. We’ve been working with the vineyard since 2006 and enjoy a long-term lease on 37 acres.
Sweeping vineyards with dramatic elevation changes and clonal variety define this exemplary site. The presence of late-season fog allows for extended hang time, which promotes flavor maturation and phenolic development. Marked by intensity, this bold and beautiful wine explodes with juicy, crowd-pleasing layers of blueberry and raspberry jam. Gap’s Crown has become the backbone of our Sonoma Coast program and we believe the viticultural standards here are second to none.
Nose: An explosion of juicy blueberry and raspberry jam is layered with blood orange and hibiscus.
Mouth: Bold and structured with a generous mouthfeel.
