2015 Kosta Browne "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1330227 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From a site that was decimated with regards to yields, the 2015 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard comes from a very diverse site that has varying soil types and elevations. At the top, it's primarily iron, volcanic soils, with some clay, but as you move down the vineyard you find more chert (seabed soils) and clay/loam. Kosta Browne owns a full 36 acres of the site, with lots of varying clones, and this is one of the larger production cuvee. The 2015 Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown Vineyard is smoking good and just loaded with notions darker fruits, caramelized blackberries, smoked earth, and pepper. Big, rich and textured on the palate, with a smoking good texture, this is one of the larger scaled, richer wines in the lineup. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blueberry, blackberry, lavender ,and ripe strawberry. Stunning aromas. Full body, with super fine tannins that are compressed and extremely long. It goes on for minutes. Inner quote mark (5/2017)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark, succulent and inviting. The biggest and most powerful of the Sonoma Coast Pinots, the 2015 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown is ample and voluptuous, but it will also need time to be at its best. There is no shortage of drive to the red cherry, spice and lavender flavors that infuse this deeply expressive Pinot. This is the first vintage the winemaking team gave the Gap's Crown a few added months in barrel, a decision that appears to have been spot on. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2017)
