The Bevan 2019 Petaluma Gap is a rich, powerful Pinot that delivers exactly what you’d expect from Bevan, tons of fruit in a balanced, seamless package. Black cherries, blackcurrants, graphite, and roasted herb notes all emerge from this full-bodied, powerful effort that has good acidity and length.
Russell Bevan’s Notes: “Over the past several months the team at Bevan Cellars has been tasting many of our Pinot Noirs from 2012 and 2013, and we are always caught off guard by how age-worthy they are. Just like its older siblings, our 2019 Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir is a wine that will live for years and years. As you might expect from a wine that is 50% from the Calera clone, this wine has a fabulous savory quality. The yin to the Calera (clone) yang is the Swan clone, which makes up the other half of this wine and provides a beautiful floral and cherry aromatic profile to complement the extreme focus of the Calera. It has amazing weight and a color that speaks to the vineyard’s rocky soils and high elevation. This wine will have an evolution that will be amazing to follow.”
