Powerhouse, hearty, deep and dark nose of black cherry, cola, toasted French oak and cinnamon stick. It’s a bell-ringer in the mouth with potent fruit (very ripe & dark red berries/cherries), pie spice and black licorice flavors. Full-bodied for Pinot Noir with smooth tannins and medium-low acidity. This is Sojourn’s “bigger is better” Pinot Noir offering.
From the eastern Sonoma Coast AVA, at the base of Sonoma Mountain, Gap’s Crown is one of Sojourn’s mainstay vineyard sources. For good reason: this vineyard makes their strongest Pinot from year to year, and they’ve developed a strong following for it.
Sojourn Cellars began in 2001 with 100 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon. They now make around 12,000 cases a year, spread over 20 wines (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon). Their style in a nutshell: California-rich style with appropriate restraint. Check out the Sojourn wines I recommend here.
