“Gap’s Crown Vineyard” Pinot Noir 2015
(Sonoma Coast, California) $65
The cold mountain ridges above the Sonoma Coast are foreboding and rugged, but the best pinot noirs that are born there are just the opposite: enticing and supple. Like this gorgeous pinot from Three Sticks’ Gap’s Crown Vineyard. Vivid, precise, and fresh, it smells of the cool ocean air that wafts in over the vines. Many pinots exude silkiness as this one does, but silkiness plus a certain graceful richness is a combination that’s irresistible. The Sonoma Coast has become ground zero for world class pinot … as this must-taste wine attests.
