2008 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2008 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2008 marks the fifth vintage for our flagship Pinot noir, made with fruit from the Sangiacomo Vineyard located on Roberts Road at the western base of Sonoma Mountain. We source fruit from two distinct blocks within this vineyard. The 115 block was originally planted in 1998 in an old creek bed. The 777 block was planted in 1999 in deeper loam soils.
Climate is key to this vineyard’s ability to produce noteworthy Pinot noir. For the 2008 vintage, cool breezes and Petaluma Gap fog allowed the fruit to hang through an early-September heat wave and reach full tannin and flavor maturity. Sugars remained in-check and the vineyard retained appealing natural acidity.

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.
