Jeb Dunnuck Review
Rated 94
More deeply colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown comes from a great site on the Sonoma Coast. It has a rich bouquet of black currants, toasted spice, and earthy notes as well as a powerful, full-bodied style on the palate. This is a big, concentrated effort that has plenty of tannins, a big mid-palate, and a great finish, and despite all its richness, it stays nicely balanced and pure. I'm a fan. Drink now-2029.

Wine Tasting Notes
The more this spectacular vineyard matures, the more dramatic its wines become. Rich, concentrated and compelling, this is an epic Pinot Noir. At the same time, Gap's Crown's signature hyper-red fruit notes combined with good acidity and a steely minerality add poise and precision. On the palate, rich flavors of cherry compote and mulled holiday spices are supported by hints of lavender, rosemary and resin from a small amount of whole-cluster fermentation. While there is a smooth, velvety ripeness to this wine, the lingering finish has a grip that bodes well for a long life.
