Product Overview

The 2014 Saxon Brown Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir is sourced from one of the winery's higher altitude sites. Here, a naturally occurring fog pocket and rocky, brown clay soils combine with an influx of coastal winds from the nearby Petaluma Gap to create the ideal conditions for low yields and long hangtime. The grapes come from the vineyard's original block, which produces extremely small clusters, of deeply concentrated, well balanced fruit. Aromas of rose and violet lead to a delicate mix of raspberry, blueberry and wild berry flavors.

Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Appellation: Sonoma Coast AVA
Aging: French oak barrels

93+ Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown has a pale to medium ruby-purple color and reveals an earthy nose of forest floor and black soil over a red and black cherry core with a waft of spice box. Medium-bodied with a solid structure of ripe, grainy tannins and refreshing acid, it has a great intensity of earth and berry flavor layers plus excellent persistence. 150 cases were made." -LPB, 2/28/17

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Rose petal and white pepper season the entry aromatics of this well-made wine, that's robust in weight and expansive tannin. Exotic fruit tones like rhubarb and pomegranate wrap around savory elements of black tea and forest floor." -VB, 3/1/19

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"An elegant style, offering delicate cherry, watermelon, wild berry, anise and earth notes, gaining depth and traction on the finish, where the flavors remain understated, with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2022. 150 cases made." -JL, 7/31/17
