93 Points - International Wine Report

One of the best values in the Sojourn portfolio bringing together several unique lots from eight vineyards spread across the AVA.  Walala and Gap's Crown Vineyard components shine in this blend, resulting in an intense wine with rich texture.  Lovely aromas of crushed blueberry, red and blue plum, dried violet flower.  It's juicy and engaging, with smoked red raspberry, wild blackberry, hoisin, sweet backing spices coursing through, and offers balance and depth with perfect levels of acidity with silky tannins leading to a long engaging finish.

A pleasure to drink now. Will further reward with 5-6 years in your cellar.
You'll want to grab as much of this gem as you possibly can!

In the Sonoma Coast in 2020, the grape vines woke up early and demanded their normal attention. Summer wild fires impacted many vineyards and hard decisions were made not to pick several vineyard blocks.  Focus was on producing only the highest quality wine and only picked grapes and made wines that met standards.  As a result, only a small quantity of Pinot Noir that showed exceptional vintage quality was bottled. This 2020 blend is layered with bright aromas and the silky mouthfeel common among the vineyard designate wines produced from these same vineyards.

Gap’s Crown, Sangiacomo, Walala, and Dorothy Cameron Vineyards represent key components used to produce this blend. Pinot noir clones 115, 828, 667, Pommard, and Swan add unique elements creating a complex Pinot noir with a myriad of textures and flavors.  As in each vintage, this blend offers balance and vibrant, lush textures that are characteristic of the Gap's Crown and Sangiacomo vineyard components.
