Gap’s View is a climatically perfect site located just southeast of Petaluma. Cool afternoon winds from the Petaluma Gap keep the fruit clean and allow it to ripen slowly. The 41 acres of Pinot Noir produce a structured, layered Pinot Noir and this site is the core of our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. We also produce a small amount of a vineyard designated wine from this exceptional site.
2018 Flanagan Pinot Noir Gap’s View
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.
