2012 Bryter Estates Tre Sette Gap’s Crown Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
15.1% alc., 110 cases, $68. “Tre Sette” means “Three Sevens” in Italian and refers to the single clone of 777 used in making this wine. Gap’s Crown Vineyard is in proximity to the Petaluma Gap. Planted in 2002 and 2005, the soils are clay loam with significant rock. 30% whole cluster fermented. Aged 14 months in 90% neutral French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately deep red cherry color in the glass. Pleasing aromas of Bing cherry, spice and sandalwood. Mid weight plus core of spiced cherry fruit with hints of anise, mocha and red berries. Plenty of sappy fruit, yet light on its feet. Flavors are not over ripe and nicely framed by complimentary oak. Finishes with a burst of cherry goodness. Score: 91. Reviewed January 23, 2015 ARTICLE »
