SOJOURN PINOT NOIR, WALALA VINEYARD, SONOMA COAST 2015

Wine Enthusiast

93 Points

This is an inaugural release from this site, an ocean-viewing, high-elevation perch overlooking the Pacific Ocean that loves the variety. A sanguine element rides a canopy of dense, thick forest floor and dark cherry compote, the tannins and oak sizable and present. A length of cardamom provides a memorable spiciness to the finish.

NVWE Notes: Distinctive for its contrasting impressions of darkly ripe fruit, piquant zest, savory spice and deeply-etched minerality, this is a delicious and clearly age-worthy wine. The aromas are an array of dried Michigan cherry, black cherry, dark boysenberry, dried blackberry, crushed dried red rose, black tea, maple leaf, star anise, humidor-spice, peppercorn and graphite scents. It offers much the same panorama on the mid-palate, although pomegranate, whortleberry and sumac berry flavors step-in to brighten things, even as hazelnut husk, cherry pit, graphite and hard-edged mineral elements clamp down on the sweet-natured fruit. Airing fully reveals the wines pretty side however, and the lasting memory is a luxuriously palate-coating one, as Italian Maraschino cherry, black raspberry, dried red cherry, red currant, dried orange peel and grenadine rise above the brooding savory expressions and drying earthy backdrop. Expect five years or more of steady improvement. 275 cases made.
