2013 Home Ranch Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley

2013 Home Ranch Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley

The Home Ranch Cuvée is built on a core of clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Home Ranch Vineyard in southwest Sonoma Valley, planted by Sojourn proprietor Craig Haserot in 2002. Tight spacing and immaculate vine training result in evening ripened grapes with tiny berries and loose clusters. The 2013 vintage delivered minuscule yields in Home Ranch Vineyard, resulting in a highly concentrated wine with inky color and persistent length. We blended the Home Ranch fruit with Cabernet Sauvignon from a neighboring vineyard in southern Sonoma Valley, resulting in a complex cuvée. Aromas of blueberry, cherry and cocoa explode out of the glass. Red and dark fruit flavors and hints of sweet spice and chocolate lead to lush textures and a lingering finish.

Home Ranch Vineyard

Sonoma Valley

Planted by Sojourn Founder Craig Haserot, the Home Ranch Vineyard is located just 10 minutes northwest of the town of Sonoma. The vineyard sits in a small bowl protected by the southern edge of Sonoma Mountain. The microclimate averages 3 to 5 degrees warmer than downtown Sonoma. The heat brings Cabernet Sauvignon to full maturity, for dark, concentrated wines.
