Savory with floral aromatics. Rich on the palate with concentrated fruit.

Beautifully integrated oak, strong red fruit (sour cherry, raspberry), tantalizing acidity and structured tannins.

Incredible dark fruits, good minerality and it's starting to drink really really well. Candied red fruits on red licorice (red vine not twizzler... Very important distinction) on the palate.

This 2011 Gaps Crown Pinot tastes of red cherries, cranberries, allspice & wet forest floor.

Great bottle. Enjoyed it as an earthy example of developed pinot noir, cranberry and savory notes of forest floor. Complement to salmon.

This is smooth and velvety to me. Wonderfully made and deliciously decadent in your mouth. Amazing finish that lingered seductively. Sadly my last bottle.
