2017 Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir

2017 Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir

Directly in the path of the Petaluma Wind Gap, the Gap’s Crown Vineyard is one of our coldest vineyards, resulting in fruit packed with flavor and tannins. The 2017 Estate Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir wows with its concentration and structure. Blueberry blossoms, black cherry, and gingerbread meld together to give this wine heavenly aromatics. On the palate, you’ll find lush, savory notes and blue fruits. This wine is built to last and is always an excellent candidate for cellaring.

Vintage
2017 was a vintage we will remember for a long time. After years of drought, we enjoyed a winter with record rainfall. Mother Nature was active, filling up dams and saturating soils while cleaning out salts that built up over time. Temperatures were cool, contributing to ideal fruit set and the season was on track for typical growth until heat waves arrived at the end of August into September. We picked some Pinot Noir prior to the heat spikes and gave the remaining vines water to let them develop further. While compressed into smaller picking windows, the grapes were perfectly developed and fermentation was steady. Thankfully, all our grapes were picked and wine was in barrel by the time the wildfires in Sonoma and Napa devastated nearby areas. Our vineyards were threatened but ultimately saved with the brave work of first responders. We are forever grateful for those who put themselves in harm's way to help save our livelihoods and for our good fortune during this atypical vintage.
