“The 2018 Gap’s View Pinot Noir explodes from the glass with a beautiful bouquet packed red fruit notes of cranberry, pomegranate, cherry and of raspberry jam that is forward and expressive. On the palate the fruit is more dark red plum and tart cherry with hints of brown sugar and subtle almond extract and notes of black tea. It’s a wine that will deliver pleasure young and will age effortlessly for 8-10 years.” - California Wine Advisors

Winery Notes: “The 2018 Flanagan Pinot Noir Gap’s View Vineyard offers an expressive nose of orange blossom, clove, and black truffle. On the palate the wine has very fine tannins, great acidity, and displays pretty red currant and Rainier cherry fruits. The key to producing top flight Pinot Noir is the site. The Gap’s View Vineyard has the right climate and soils to produce great Pinot Noir. The winemaking is focused on balance and allowing the site and the vintage to express itself.”
