This fresh, invigorating Pinot Noir packs in the flavors of pomegranate, tart cherry and wild strawberry. Grounded in earthy aromas and savory undertones, the thick, concentrated body is supported by firm tannins and complemented by a wonderfully bright acidity. Traditionally “tasting room only,” Gap’s Crown is a rare jewel for any cellar!

Located along a ridge top amongst the native redwoods, oaks and madrones, Gary Farrell's winery is smack dab in the middle of the Russian River Valley and nestled into one of the most magical places on earth. The winery specializes in making some of the best Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from Sonoma's most recognized regions. Their winery is immaculate and ideal for serious winemaking. An array of presses, sorting tables and temperature controlled tanks mean that they have the utmost control during fermentation and winemaking. But it's not enough to be technically perfect - these guys have committed themselves to cultivating relationships with growers, vendors and customers too. A wine crafted with integrity and honesty goes a long way to make friends, don't you agree?

Wine Enthusiast

From the windswept site at the heart of the Petaluma Gap, this wine offers tones of wild strawberry, blueberry and blood orange. The thick, concentrated body is lifted by firm tannins and bright acidity, while the finish lingers on a forest floor tone.
