Guarachi Family Wine Gaps Crown Pinot Noir 2015

Gap’s Crown is part of the Sonoma Coast AVA and is situated at the confluence of where Sonoma Mountain and its surrounding southwest facing hills meet the Petaluma Wind Gap (Petaluma Gap).

Perched on the western edge of Sonoma Mountain, ranging in elevation from 300′ to 840′ above sea level, Gap’s Crown takes advantage of the steep Sonoma Mountain hillsides to promote natural airflow and soil drainage within the vineyard.

  • 100% Pinot Noir, Clone 777
  • Aged 11 months in 100% French Oak, 65% New
  • Alcohol 14.8%
  • SRP = $75.00

Cool ocean breezes between the Sonoma Mountain and the Petaluma Wind Gap trap coastal fog just before harvest to ensure slow, and evenly ripened fruit. Oak-inspired spice with rich and decadent fruit.
