2009 Furthermore Gap’s Crown Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.7% alc., pH 3.53, TA 0.63, 47 cases, $50. Clones 115, 667 and 777. Aged 10 months in 50% new French oak barrels. · Moderate ruby color in the glass. Fragrant array of dark red fruits with a hint of sassafras. Modest richness with pleasing flavors of dark cherries and berries with savory herbs and brown spice in the background. Very smoothly textured and easy to drink. Much better the next day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, displaying richer fruit flavor. Very good. Reviewed June 24, 2012
