    April 13, 2016 - See my December 2014 notes. Consistent, although I would add now that I don't think I will/should wait much longer in drinking our last bottle.

    August 9, 2015 - This is the best Sojourn Pinot I've had in a few years and I've been steadily plowing through my stash going back to the '08 vintage. Based on some earlier tasting notes, this seems to have shed some of its baby fat. Lighted bodied than most Sojourns. The nose has a wonderfully expressive floral nose with pure red fruits. Palate has tart red cherry and raspberry. Lithe and fresh. Finishes with wonderful acidity before the profile turns a little darker fruited as the finish glides along gracefully.

    May 24, 2015 - 2 hour decant. Dark red. Generous and fruit forward. Black cherry, cola, a hint of citrus, and forest floor. Long finish.

    March 17, 2015 - Better bottle than the last! Hint more bacon on the palate and acidic bite on the finish.
