The aromas are sturdy and intense, with ripe plum, cherry and huckleberry, followed by earthy truffle. Precise and textured with chocolate cherry and briary fruit on the front palate. Notes of orange flower and fennel seed define a long and smooth finish.
Broad-shouldered, very ripe and rich, with great intensity and concentration to the baked berry notes, mixing blueberry, wild berry, plum and raspberry. Ends with fresh earth, wilted rose and subtle berry flavors. Drink now through 2020.
Vivid ruby. Heady, expansive bouquet of candied red and dark berries, incense and Asian spices, with a smoky accent coming up with aeration. Sappy, palate-staining black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors show impressive depth and energy, picking up floral and cinnamon nuances on the back half. The finish repeats the spicy note and clings with excellent tenacity.
Another highlight, the 2010 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard is one of the most vivid, totally alive wines in this lineup. There is a lot going on in the glass, starting with beautifully delineated aromatics, great definition in the fruit and a long, creamy finish. Now that Kosta-Browne investor Bill Price has also purchased Gaps Crown, this site becomes an estate vineyard for the winery. All the elements are in place for the 2010 to develop beautifully in bottle, but I will not be surprised if future vintages are even better.
