Sojourn Pinot Noir 2009

SANGIACOMO VINEYARD SONOMA COAST

91

From a well-known, even iconic site for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the 2009 Pinot Noir Sangiacomo Vineyard comes from Dijon clones 115 and 777. The color is similar to the other Pinot Noirs, dark ruby with some lightening at the edge. With pure cherry and raspberry notes as well as hints of herbs and loamy soil, the wine is medium to full-bodied, not as open or expressive as his previous three offerings, but deep and impressively built, with outstanding concentration and flavor authority. It has crisp acidity and should drink nicely for at least 5-6 years. It could benefit from another 6 months of bottle age. $48.
