    October 16, 2016 - The '08 has been sitting in my cellar since 2011, and I've been looking forward to tasting one with some age on it. My first Home Ranch was in tasted in 2009 with the '06 vintage. It was the wine that turned me on to Sojourn. I enjoy the pinot noirs with age, so why not the cab. At p'n p, this tasted what a 8 year old California Cab should taste like. Very smooth. Elegant. Rich and full bodied. Drank with friends. I certainly got my moneysworth on this $39 bottle. I wish I had more.

    August 21, 2016 - Loads of sweet cherry up-front. Turned to blueberry. More mineral and earth towards the end.

    October 8, 2015 - Popped and poured with pot roast, then drank over the next 4 hours. This had a lot of vanilla and oak on it...a bit slutty even for me. Dark blackberry fruit. As time went on, the vanilla and oak wore off, and it seemed to show a lot of acidity from the fruit, although missing some of that juiciness of the fruit. Not mind blowing, but it's enjoyable.

    May 5, 2015 - Will post notes on the second 12oz on day 2 or 3. Nice balance, dark fruit. Home Ranch is almost also really good.

    May 3, 2015 - The fruit on this seemed almost a little gloopy for me. Lots of blue and black fruits. Lower acidity but just enough there to keep it from tippy over the edge of being too overripe for my taste.
