Pop 'n Pour birthday wine with Jane, Mitch et al. A feminine wine. Light and elegant, with a taste of cherries. Tasted alongside a 2010 Ridgetop, which was masculine and bold. My wife + non-geek friends preferred the Gaps Crown. I thought it was a toss up. When everyone at the table (waitress included) saw 2 bottles of the 'same' wine, they were perplexed; until I explained that these wines were from 2 vineyards.
Last consumed just about a year ago. It really has not changed: "aromas of black cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, sage, floral scents and oak. As with the last tasting, the flavors are the same, along with raspberry and spice. Big, rich and concentrated fruit in the mouth. Excellent structure as well as balance. A long and lingering finish." Score 93-94.
