2010 Trombetta Family Wines Gap’s Crown Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
14.8% alc., 600 cases, $58. Petaluma Gap vineyard location. Clones 777, Swan and 828. Native yeast fermentations, extended maceration, aged 9 months in 50% new and 50% 1-year-old French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered. · Dark plum color in the glass. Super ripe fruit profile. Aromas of crushed black grapes, cassis, blackberries, tea leaf and soy sauce. Full-bodied flavors of sweet black raspberry and black currant fruit, assuming a dried-out character over time in the glass with notes of raisin, hay, grass and tea leaf showing up. Stops just short of syrupy. Some fine-grain tannins and a lingering fruit-driven finish. Pushes the ripeness envelope too far for my taste, but well-made in its style. Decent.
