Sojourn Cellars Rodgers Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Rodgers Creek Vineyard sits high on a ridge in the heart of the Petaluma Gap, one of the coolest and foggiest growing regions in Sonoma. The vineyard’s cool climate and steep slopes are well suited for growing exceptional Pinot noir. At first sip, the wine really speaks to Pinot noir enthusiasts with its compelling and complex aromas. Expressive red fruit and notes of earth and mushroom shine through with intensity, thanks to the combination of unique soils and dominance of the Pommard clone. A portion of the grapes were fermented whole cluster, adding aromatic complexity and structural verve.
This is one of the coolest climate sites that the producer sources from, also known for growing great Syrah. Savory and earthy, it has a gamy, meaty quality wrapped in silky smooth tannins. The acidity bursts forth with focus and tension.
