The wine shows focused blueberry, black cherry and ripe currants in the nose, followed by intense blackberry and cassis. In the background there is a dusting of cocoa and black plum. The 2011 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir exhibits dark black and blue fruits that drive down the center of your palate and slowly melt into all areas of the mouth. There is focused acidity and a tannic grip that carry the rich dark fruit character towards the midpalate, followed by creamy black cherry, dark plum and dried currants. There is intensity to this wine that is followed by a slow release of complex flavors and textures, leading to a long and lingering finish.

International Wine CellarVivid red. Sexy, smoke- and spice-accented aromas of candied red berries, vanilla and rose pastille. Juicy and expansive, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of star anise. Very fresh, with excellent finishing clarity and sneaky tannins. There's "a lot of Gap's Crown" fruit in here, according to Browne.

Wine SpectatorFresh and vibrant, tight and well-balanced, with zesty, snappy raspberry and wild berry notes, this gains richness and depth on the licorice-accented finish. Drink now through 2020. 5,004 cases made.
