2013 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2013 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2013 was our 9th vintage producing a Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir. This vineyard is situated on Roberts Road at the western base of Sonoma Mountain. We source fruit from six distinct blocks, each one adding a layer of texture and flavor nuance. Cool ocean breezes and Petaluma Gap fog keep the heat in check, allowing for long hang time while retaining acidity. The vines woke up early, yet the moderate climate of the 2013 vintage allowed flavors to mature slowly with long hang times, while the juice retained fresh natural acidity. Climate is key to this vineyard’s ability to produce noteworthy Pinot noir. This wine is deep with lush creamy textures and dark red fruit flavors. It is nicely balanced with seductive aromas of dark cherry, black tea and earthy forest floor.

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.
