A really nice entry level Pinot for Sojourn with a subtle but elegant nose of cherries and raspberries with a hint of earthiness. On the palate, the cherry flavors are tart and there is a soft earthiness in the mouth. Silky tannins with a fine, nicely balanced acidic finish. Great QPR here that would works great with spicy food.
Much better than a prior bottle as it was bigger, riper and had more body and depth. Decent flavors of tart cherry and berry with a bit of bramble and herbs after some airtime. At the same time is was a bit simple, rough and acidic. Overall a decent, but unspectacular wine. Normally a very solid performer, but I did not enjoy this as much as prior vintages.
This bottle may restore my faith in Sojourn after a few disappointing bottles of the Chardonnay. This has matured beautifully. The fruit and oak are integrated. Acidity in perfect balance. Sassafras and black licorice/fennel. Medium plus weight.
Since I couldn't make to it Pinot Days in NYC thanks to the blizzard, I decided to open this. Good pairing with homemade chicken soup. On pop 'n pour, this was ready to drink. It's full bodied, rich, and elegant. Considering this is an entry level Sojourn, I was pleased. It's really good. Nose and taste of cherries and spice. I've always said that I like my Sojourn wines with some age, and was proven right again! Drank over 5 hours.
