2018 Westwood Pinot Noir, Gap's Crown Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
Our second release of Gap’s Crown Pinot Noir sourced from very small and very select vineyard blocks in the prized Petaluma Gap. Ruby red-purple. The wine displays concentrated aromatics that burst from the glass, offering cherry cobbler, raspberry, and violets centered on a forest floor base note. The palate is broad and deep, with soft tannins creating elegant length and texture. Flavors are bright and lively of berry compote, freshly smashed cherries, juicy strawberry and lingering hints of five-spice and orange peel. Buoyed by energetic yet interwoven natural acids and threaded with very fine-grained tannins. Presents a lingering, long lasting finish.
