An up-and-coming hillside vineyard seen more and more in Sonoma is the Gap’s Crown Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast. The 2009 Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown Vineyard, made from some whole clusters, is one of the deeper, more saturated ruby-colored Pinot Noirs from Sojourn. Very Burgundian, with deep raspberry, forest floor, and black cherry fruit as well as hints of earth and mineral, there is a sense of spring flowers as well in this complex, deep, rich, full-bodied Pinot Noir, which is stunning. It has loads of black and red fruits, and to me is the most complex of the Pinot Noirs in the Sojourn Cellars portfolio. It is also a blend of the more modern clones, 113, 114 and 828. Already drinking well, with lots of complexity, it should continue to do so for 7-8 more years. (RP)
Firm and concentrated, with complex dried berry, sage, fresh earth, forest floor, underbrush, anise and cedar notes, tightly bound but increasingly expansive and complex as the finish unfolds. Drink now through 2018. (JL)
