Sourcing prime fruit from celebrated vineyards in both Sonoma and Napa Counties, Sojourn Cellars helps direct farming operations to assure that the grapes are produced using the best growing techniques, low yields and high quality are achieved. In the cellar, Founder Craig Haserot and Winemaker Erich Bradley are zealous proponents of minimalist winemaking. All Sojourn wines are fermented and barrel-aged in small lots and attended to when necessary by hand from the vineyard to the bottle to best manage tannins and mouthfeel and to preserve the maximum amount of personality. This Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot Noir is a prime example, only 1150 cases were produced, aged in 50% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Pinot Report scored it 96 points saying "Deep ruby color; deep, complex, spicy aromas with
some cherry and clove notes; deep, full stewed cherry flavors with cinnamon, clove and earthy notes; mouthfilling texture; great structure and balance; long finish. Ripe, forward and very
complex Pinot that shows well now but really needs time to develop."
