2017 KOSTA BROWNE GAP’S CROWN PINOT NOIR

$150.00

Kosta Browne Gap’s Crown Pinot Noir 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…

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 leads 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.

2017 KOSTA BROWNE GAP’S CROWN VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

Winery Notes: “An explosion of juicy blueberry and raspberry jam is layered with blood orange and hibiscus. Bold and structured with a generous mouthfeel.”

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2017 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown Vineyard was aged 10-19 months in several vessels: 35% new French oak, 20% concrete and 13% wooden tanks. Medium ruby, it’s scented of black tea leaves, licorice, wild blackberries, dried lilac and tree bark with hints of blood orange, potpourri, saline and crushed red berry fruit. It’s medium-bodied and ultra silky with wonderful layering of pure fruits, amaro and spices, with a gentle, grainy frame and fantastic juicy freshness, finishing long and elegant. How lovely! 3,500 cases produced.” WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS
