Winemaker Erich Bradley Notes
The 2014 growing season began very early with winter drought conditions leading to early bud break and one of the earliest harvests on record. March rains fueled the vines and moderate summer weather allowed the grapes to develop at an even pace. We began picking in late August as the grapes achieved optimal ripeness. All of our Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes were picked by the end of September. Thicker skins and even ripening conditions resulted in balanced, complex wines of depth and nuance. Gap's Crown vineyard delivers strong phenolics each vintage, with dark velvety colors, ample tannins, and great acidity. In 2014, the Gap’s Crown grape skins were thick and ripe. The resulting wine is well-structured, layered, and built to age wel ...more... l. Clones 667 and 115 formed the base of the blend. A portion of clone 828 was fermented with stems and blended in, for an overall rate of 10% whole-cluster.
