Sojourn Cellars Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Gap's Crown is situated on Roberts Road just above the Sangiacomo Vineyard. This is a high-end hillside vineyard that is now considered in the top echelon of California Pinot noir vineyards. Steep slopes and rocky soils cause significant vine stress, and the resulting wines are concentrated, with complex flavors, and phenomenal structures. The exceptional 2013 vintage allowed for perfect hang-time and picking conditions. Flavors were bursting as optimal ripeness was achieved. Dark cherry and boysenberry aromas lead to hints of baking spice, chocolate, and thyme. This is a complex wine that makes a stunning first impression with its explosive aromatics, plush textures, and excellent structure. In 2013, we fermented 10% of the grapes whole-cluster adding to the wine's rich character and aromatic complexity.
