    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 vintage is the 2nd vintage of Gap's Crown. She's probably MacPhail's richest and most full-bodied of the Sonoma Coast lineup. She shows the acidity of the cool-climate that is the Petaluma Gap. There is a lushness about her that hints at sweet oak and dark fruit. She's chewy and luxurious in the mouth, and her layers unfold in the glass, revealing layers of black cherry and plum fruit. Her nose smells of dark coffe and cola. Intense.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright ruby. Red berry and cherry liqueur aromas are complicated by notes of musky herbs, sassafras and candied rose. Sweet, seamless and expansive on the palate, offering energetic raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a sexy touch of Asian spices. Vanilla and woodsmoke nuances build on a finish shaped by smooth, soft tannins. Sexy and delicious right now for its extroverted fruit character. There's 60% new oak here.

    International Wine Cellar

    Ripe and juicy with black cherry and tangy acidity; rich, spicy and complex with lively flavors and good length.
