This wine is largely sourced from the Oakville Ranch Vineyard, perched high above the valley floor at 1,000-1,400 feet of elevation. Small, concentrated berries were harvested and lightly pressed into 75% new oak for 20 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The resulting wine showcases classic, bold Oakville richness and will be most enjoyed after an hour of decanting.
What started out as an ambitious project between friends Craig Haserot and Erich Bradley has matured into an incredible lineup of wines from some of the best vineyard sources in California. Sojourn produces small lots of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon that consistently receive critical acclaim.
Based in the town of Sonoma, Sojourn Cellars specializes in the production of artisan Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon. They source fruit from celebrated vineyards in both Sonoma and Napa Counties, and help direct farming operations to assure that their grapes are treated with the highest level of attention. Although Sojourn's label is quite relaxing, the people behind the winery work tirelessly to hand craft award winning wines. Simply put, these are some of the best Pinots we've come across.More from this winery
