Our 2022 Spring Release features our most coveted Pinot noir and Chardonnay wines from the 2020 vintage, including the 95 point rated Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir and our brand new Petaluma Gap Pinot Noir wine, rated 94 points. Also in this release are two of our most popular 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon wines, headlined by 95 point rated Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III in Rutherford.
Our Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir exhibits phenomenal structure. Flavors are lifted and nuanced, while offering dark berry and cherry aromas with notes of baking spice. Gap’s Crown is a premier vineyard within the Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast. It sits at a windy 800 feet with volcanic soils that deliver intense, concentrated wines.
One of our most extreme sites, the Walala Vineyard’s remarkable character stems from its 1,200-foot elevation, gravelly loam soils and proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Cool coastal temperatures allow for long hang time and balanced acidity, while the elevation gives the fruit ample sunlight in which to ripen.
Our flagship wine since 2004, the Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir is robust, while again delivering the creamy mouthfeel for which this wine has long been known. Its high quality reflects the Sangiacomo family’s commitment to meticulous farming, their calling card for three generations. The wine offers classic Pinot noir aromas, berry flavors and a touch of forest floor.
This wine is a blend of four lots from premier vineyards in the wind-swept Petaluma Gap region of the Sonoma Coast. They join together with wonderful synergy, combining the intensity and structure of the hillside Gap’s Crown Vineyard with the elegance and creamy texture of Sangiacomo Vineyard. Flavors are bright yet deep and resonate with a savory nuance.
One of the best values in the Sojourn portfolio, the Sonoma Coast Pinot noir brings together several unique lots from sites that comprise several of our single-vineyard designate bottlings. Walala and Gap’s Crown Vineyards are the key components, creating a polished blend that offers robust flavors and exceptional texture. This wine is the real deal.
The drought conditions of 2020 resulted in low yields for Chardonnay grapes across the Sonoma Coast. Sangiacomo Vineyard produced small, loose Chardonnay clusters that resulted in greater intensity. The finished wine offers deep aromas and lively acidity. It is fruit forward with flavors of stone fruit, citrus and apple.
We source our 2020 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay from three of the top vineyard sites in Sonoma County – Sangiacomo, Durell, and Gap’s Crown – with the goal of creating a cuvée that showcases the varietal’s exceptional character across the Sonoma Coast appellation. These diverse vineyards produced light crops in 2020 due to drought conditions, with each vineyard offering layers of robust flavors. The wine is a tremendous value at $38.
This wine, from the renowned Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III in Rutherford, offers big aromas and flavors of dark cherry, earth, and the mocha notes of the classic Rutherford Dust profile. Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III offered lower yields in 2019 with smaller clusters and tiny berries, resulting in a wine of great intensity.
Planted by Sojourn proprietor Craig Haserot in 2002, the Home Ranch Vineyard is tucked away in the southwest corner of Sonoma Valley, where it is warm enough to fully ripen Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2019 vintage offers exceptional structure, with fine grain tannins and a long finish.
