About this product

Over the past two decades, Kosta Browne has risen to prominence among California Pinot enthusiasts as a premier source for boutique, single-vineyard bottlings of extraordinary purity and luxurious complexity. The Gap's Crown vineyard is synonymous with Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The elevation, exposure to winds, and generally cooler microclimate all make for wines of uncompromising elegance and vibrancy. Winery notes: "GapÂs Crown 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. Since we began working with this site in 2006, its meteoric rise into the pantheon of great Pinot Noir vineyards has been extraordinary. Sweeping vineyards with dramatic elevation changes and clonal variety define this exemplary site. Each year, this Pinot Noir dazzles with its stunning purity and lush flavorsÂand 2018 is no exception. From its mouthwatering tension to its seductive, flowing flavors of blueberry, blackberry pie, and honeycomb, this is classic Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. To capture the siteÂs vibrancy, the majority of the wine was fermented in stainless steel, with a small portion aged in concrete to enhance the wineÂs irresistible mouthfeel."
