Bottle Notes, Pinot Noir

2007 Sojourn Pinot Noir Sangiacomo Vineyard – Bottle Notes

Sojourn Cellars was founded in 2001 by Craig Haserot and Erich Bradley. The winery specializes in Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and recently added a Chardonnay to the lineup. Their fruit is sourced from some of California’s finest vineyards.

Sangiacomo Vineyard is located on Roberts Road at the western base of Sonoma Mountain. Sojourn sources from two distinct blocks planted in the late 1990’s.

Pale red in color. 14.5% ABV. Cherries, cloves and cola on the nose. Medium body and medium acidity. Cherries, strawberries, cinnamon and plenty of earth on the palate. Great finish. Simply a delicious wine. So much to like. Drink over the next 2-3 years.

My rating: 92 points.

Current vintages are available via the Sojourn mailing list and website. The 2012 is priced at $54 per bottle.

Definitely consider a visit to the Sojourn tasting parlor on your next visit to Sonoma. They do a one-of-a-kind sit down tasting where you will have the opportunity to sample many of their highly acclaimed wines. My wife and I have had the good fortune to spend some quality time with Craig and Ziggy (his dog with a talent for sniffing out TCA).
