2014 WALT "Gap's Crown" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir - Gap's Crown Vineyard

Critic Review
Virginie Boone - Wine Enthusiast
This is a bold, brawny red from a famous site, velvety in texture and all power and concentration. Forest floor and a touch of smoke complement juicy dark cherry, caramelized oak and licorice, while bright acidity supports the layers of flavor and strong tannins.

Deep ruby in color, this wine exhibits effusive aromas of ripe strawberry jam, spice, cola, and smoke with hints of vinous. The palate exudes flavors of forest floor, porcini mushroom, earth, and fruit compote. This wine is rich, dense and mouth coating with fresh acidity on the finish.

In 2014, an exceptionally dry winter and warm spring led to an early bud break. The growing season ran ahead of schedule all year. The lower yields produced concentrated, complex, and age-worthy wines.
