2006 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2006 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2006 marks the third vintage for our flagship Pinot noir with fruit from the Sangiacomo family. This 2006 wine is a blend of 80 percent from the Roberts Road Vineyard and 20 percent from the Lakeville Vineyard. We were fortunate to have had the opportunity to obtain the Lakeville fruit in 2006, and the wines blended together simply make a better wine than bottling them separately. This wine comes from two clones; 115: which adds structure, and 777, which contributes spicy, earthy aromatics.
The 2006 growing season was a challenging one in many respects for Sonoma County grape growers. June and July brought blistering heat, mixed with some very cool and foggy stretches of weather. Clusters were very tight and berry sizes were larger than normal.
The Sangiacomo’s have been farming grapes for many years and fortunately the Pinot noir fruit we obtained was clean, ripe and flavorful.
The nose exudes floral overtones with ripe cherries. On the palate, sweet cherries and raspberries dominate, along with rich spice and earth.
This wine is a bit more elegant and reserved in style than its predecessors… We think it’s fabulous!

Sangiacomo Vineyard

Sonoma Coast, Petaluma Gap

Sangiacomo Vineyard on Roberts Road near Cotati has been Sojourn’s flagship Pinot noir vineyard since 2004. This exceptional site was developed in an old creekbed at the western base of Sonoma Mountain. In summer and fall, cool air and fog from the Pacific Ocean get trapped here, allowing for uncommonly long hangtimes without sacrificing acidity and balance.
