Gap's Crown, Sonoma Coast
Gap's Crown is located in Sonoma Coast on the west side of Sonoma Mountain. Its rocky soils combine with winds from the Petaluma Gap to create a challenging growing environment, but one that is producing consistently great fruit. Most of the vineyard has optimal southwest exposure and is a very high density planting with over 2,000 vines per acre. Wines from this cool climate vineyard are very dark, show dark cherry and have an excellent tannin and acid backbone required for aging.
