    January 14, 2017 - Popped and poured. Followed over 5 hours. Bought upon release and stored professional. My first bottle. My experience did not improve with aeration.

    I found this wine to be cloying with sweet caramel, vanilla, and oozy viscous dark cherry and root beer cola. Tannins were pillowy and for all practical purposes, absent. I longed for structure and acid. It is obviously a well crafted wine, perhaps too crafted. Not my style. I have enjoyed his sonoma coast bottlings much more.

    December 5, 2016 - When I read that the 2014 was #35 on the Wine Spectator Top 100, I decided to pop my 2011 with dinner. It's been over 3 years since my last bottle. This is a dark color wine. Very un-pinoish looking. There were no tannins present. It was rich, somewhat chewy, smooth, and ready to go at pop n pour. I'm glad that I tasted this rather than wait. Some taste of berries. I've always said that I love Sojourn wines with some age, and this bottle continued to prove the point. On Day 2, there was no improvement. The wine tasted as good as it did on pop n pour on the first day!

    Sojourn was the first list that I signed up for. I've been drinking Gaps every vintage since 2007. This is an impressive wine. Craig, congrats on the 2014.

    November 24, 2016 - Another nice Pinot from Sojourn that nicely complimented our Thanksgiving dinner. Not too complex, with flavors of cherry, cola, spice and earth. I have two more bottles and don't think they'll benefit from further aging. Time to drink up!

    September 19, 2016 - Drinking as well as you would expect for the vintage and producer. Well made and lower fruit than normal. A good dose of earthiness on this one. Some lingering spice. Drink now or can go 5 more years probably
