One of the most revered vineyards inside the Petaluma Gap AVA is Gap’s Crown, and it’s beloved for producing profoundly expressive and intensely flavored fruit.  Producers like Kosta Browne, Patz & Hall, and Sojourn have all helped to put it on the map. Bruliam’s 2016 version swept me off my feet in a recent tasting with its deeply enchanting flavors, compact core, and precision balance. We bought every bottle left of the tiny 150 case production, but sadly, it’s not going to be enough.

Bruliam’s allocation of Gap’s Crown fruit netted a whopping 2.29 tons of perfectly ripened berries and was an even split between Dijon Clones 115 and 777. 115 offers the muscle, while 777 produces a potent bouquet, and together, well, you just have to try it.

Medical doctor-turned-winemaker Kerith Overstreet makes Bruliam, and it’s her attention to every minute detail in the winemaking process that translates to wines with captivating balance and a wonderful sense of place.

Description

2016 BRULIAM GAP’S CROWN VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

Another terrific wine is the 2016 Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown Vineyard, and it comes from a cooler site in the Sonoma Coast AVA, was completely destemmed, and spent ten months in 16% new French oak. Red and black currants, smoked earth, hints of leafy herbs, and forest floor all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced Pinot Noir that has fine tannins and a great finish. It’s a beautiful effort that has a kiss of Burgundy in its sweet California fruit.

From the great site now within the Petaluma Gap is this stewy, meaty and concentrated wine from a great vintage, is ebullient in strawberry, plum and mint. The backbone of the red’s medium-bodied richness is concentrated in savory spice and herb, with a lacing of acid-driven minerality.”
