Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2010 vintage is the 2nd vintage of Gap's Crown. She's probably MacPhail's richest and most full-bodied of the Sonoma Coast lineup. She shows the acidity of the cool-climate that is the Petaluma Gap. There is a lushness about her that hints at sweet oak and dark fruit. She's chewy and luxurious in the mouth, and her layers unfold in the glass, revealing layers of black cherry and plum fruit. Her nose smells of dark coffe and cola. Intense.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby. Red berry and cherry liqueur aromas are complicated by notes of musky herbs, sassafras and candied rose. Sweet, seamless and expansive on the palate, offering energetic raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a sexy touch of Asian spices. Vanilla and woodsmoke nuances build on a finish shaped by smooth, soft tannins. Sexy and delicious right now for its extroverted fruit character. There's 60% new oak here."
92 Points

"Ripe and juicy with black cherry and tangy acidity; rich, spicy and complex with lively flavors and good length."
90 Points

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
