2018 Three Sticks 'Gap's Crown Vineyard' Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast California USA
Perched on the western face of Sonoma Mountain, this estate property gets maximum exposure to the Petaluma Gap's whipping winds and fog, making Gap's Crown the coldest property in our portfolio of vineyards. In this Pinot Noir haven, the fruit is subjected to the Pacific Ocean's bold marine layer and builds strength while basking in the warm but short afternoons. With vines specifically planted to withstand the morning fog and powerful winds, the Gap's Crown Pinot is rich and boisterous. One of our best candidates for long-term cellaring, this Pinot is full of savory notes that converge into mouthwatering black cherry, Earl Grey tea, and gingerbread. Three Sticks is infatuated.
