    January 14, 2022 - smooth tannins. Lacked a little in depth.

    November 11, 2021 - Opened and decanted by HMC....probably the best I have ever tasted for a Sojourn cab! In a really good spot right now with sweet, dark fruit, rounded tannins and balanced acidity. Very nice, Jimbo!

    September 27, 2021 - So, I have struggled with this wine. I first tasted it with the winemaker in 2019 and thought it was terrific. I subsequently purchased three bottles from the secondary market, as quite a discount. I drank the second last evening, not decanted, but over 3 hours.

    For me, the last two bottles are simply lacking something special. It has an attractive nose, that doesn't quite deliver on the palate. Nice wine, well made, dark fruits with cassis and cherries, hints of earth/dust/minerality, wood. medium in body, short finish. I ight of guessed it was a beckstoffer cab, but more muted than other producers.

    Overall, it is available at a very decent price, but I think that far better expressions of this vineyard exist
