Medium garnet color, slightly cloudy. Cranberry, pomegranate, cherry, baking spices and a hint of sweet oak on the nose. Similar flavors on the palate with spicy red fruit dominating. Smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Good acidity. Very tasty and enjoyable pinot.
Raspberry, cherry, chocolate, herbs and sweet oak. Initially the nose comes across better than the flavors, but after about fifteen minutes the flavors catch up. In the mouth, rich and intense fruit. Decent structure. A medium finish. Drinking quite well now; the tannins seem fairly well resolved.
Juicy red cherries, raspberries, licorice along with black pepper, herbs and cocoa on the nose. The palate matches though the fruit is more pronounced than the other flavors. Medium acidity and light+ tannins. I'm writing my note on day three and this is drinking better today than the past two- that makes me think this will age well even if the structure isn't as full as what I'd normally expect would make a good aging wine.
Monthly Tasting Group: Blind Pinots Worldwide (The Dakota, Mpls, MN): Medium dark red to dark red color. Tasting pour, blind over an hour. Had this as Cali, Sonoma Coast, maybe RRV; very ripe, cola, cherry, earth, VERY ripe; big on the palate, cherry vanilla, rhubarb, cherry, full bodied, alcohol, slightly savory. This is another in a recent line of Sojourns that was underwhelming.
