It was Gaps Crown and Sangiacomo that we tried. I thought both were great and re-affirmed my like for Sojourn as well as got me optimistic on 07. I gave the nod to Sangiacomo although the Gaps Crown was just as good on day 2.

Gap's Crown is a pretty big vineyard from what I recall. KB, Sojourn, Harrington Wines did a Gap's Crown for a while and I think Ladd Cellars as well. The Gap's Crown "Swan Clone" was my favorite when at KB the one year they got it. I left before it was bottled though

Got me thinking...Gap's Crown is 140 acres planted.

Here's the website. http://www.ppvco.com/gapscrown.php

I see it is a registered trademark, so we should all be writing Gap's CrownR

Thread drift(s)...

Seriously, another board to follow? The bb on parker is a full-time job as is. Ugggh... Thanks, Yoni!

Philip Robert, you are invited to ANY offline I have. EVER! hahaha.

Okay, Sojourn... very excited about this. Probably just going to be in on the Sonoma and Sangiacomo. Although I haven't bought any wine in '09 and I kind of don't miss it. Strange, but maybe I'm over the excitement of buying, I don't know.

Glad to see other fans of Sangiocomo vineyard around here - that's my favorite CA PN vineyard outside of basically the entire Pisoni property. Sojourn makes a great Sangiocomo PN, so does Alcina - heck, any SG PN I've had, I've enjoyed, and I think that I could probably recognize that vineyard blind - that one and Pisoni, but no others. I remember being enthralled by it when some folks at Frank Murray's house recognized Pisoni vineyard, but the noses of those two vineyards are rather distinct, and very memorable to me.

PPV has the tiger by the tail with Gap's Crown. When I worked for Patz & Hall, some of my favorites wines, both Chard and PN, came from there, and more than just a one-hit wonder. Great ripeness with great natural acidity; similar to Hyde Vineyards in that respect, except in an overall cooler spot.

It's a big vineyard, so keep an eye out for it. I have a feeling that those who follow cooler climate varieties in CA will be seeing it more and more.
