Our Fall 2019 wine release features our small lot Pinot noir and Chardonnay wines from West Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley, headlined by our Reuling, Riddle and Ridgetop Vineyard wines. Also in the release are two deep and silky Cabernet Sauvignon wines from renowned vineyards in Napa Valley.
Reuling Vineyard is planted to three unique Pinot noir clones: Calera and two distinct “suitcase” clones from the Vosne-Romanée region of Burgundy. This impressive and distinctive wine from the 2017 vintage opens with complex aromas of earth and forest floor that lead notes of dark cherry, mushroom and truffle.

Riddle Vineyard sits on a coastal ridge in Green Valley near the town of Occidental, a rugged section of the West Sonoma Coast that overlooks the iconic Pinot noir sites of the region. Our 2017 Riddle Vineyard Pinot noir showcases intriguing, concentrated bramble berry character supported by ample structure from silky tannins.

Ridgetop Vineyard lies atop the mountains along the northwest Sonoma Coast near the town of Annapolis. Buffeted by Pacific Ocean breezes, vines here undergo a beneficial struggle, producing only miniscule yields with concentrated flavors, provocative aromatics and silky, supple texture. This Sojourn fan favorite, produced since 2009, sells out quickly each year.

Wohler Vineyard sits in the heart of the acclaimed Russian River Valley, within sight of the Russian River and the historic Wohler Bridge. This wine is a blockbuster with expressive aromas that explode from the glass. We source grapes from five distinct blocks within the vineyard providing richness and density as the foundation of the blend, as well as a bright fruit, elegance and earthiness.

This blend from five vineyard sites–including Wohler, Riddle, Pratt and Reuling Vineyards–offers a beautiful expression of the cool climates and loamy soils that Pinot noir loves. The wine’s vivid, complex fruit character is accented with earthy notes, balanced by bright acidity, and supported by silky tannins.

We sourced grapes from two outstanding vineyard blocks within Durell Vineyard, one of the most sought after sites for premium Chardonnay wines. The 2017 vintage is from 100 percent Old Wente clone that was harvested at night, pressed to extract the highest quality juice, and fermented in French oak barrels to enhance the exceptional character of the vintage.

For our most mineral driven Chardonnay, we source grapes from three distinct blocks of Gap’s Crown Vineyard known for small, dense clusters.

The wine’s smooth, persistent texture will appeal to Francophiles and New World Chardonnay fans alike.

Oakville Ranch Vineyard sits at 1,400 feet in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains at the eastern edge of the renowned Oakville District, under the care of esteemed organic viticulturist Phil Coturri. Cool Pacific breezes, warm air from the valley, and soils of rock, clay, loam, and basalt all combine to produce wines of great structure, power, and depth. The lauded 2016 vintage provided ideal weather conditions for the grapes to ripen optimally.

Oakville Ranch Vineyard–the backbone of our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon–dominates the blend of our generous and supple 2016 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine spent nearly four weeks fermenting on skins to ensure that the tannins and fruit flavors were balanced. The resulting wine is rich and vibrant, offering vivid flavors of blackberry, raspberry, cassis and mocha.
