Winemaker Erich Bradley reveals the stories behind this coveted Sojourn Cellars wine, vineyard, and tasting salon. (97 points Pinot Report, 94 points Wine Spectator, 91+ points Robert Parker)
Like previous vintages, the 2009 Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir has a rich, dark fruit profile and a luscious, creamy texture. However, the 2009 vintage is enhanced with additional layers of complex earth and forest floor reflecting our blending of Pinot noir clones Swan and Pommard with our traditional blocks of clones 115 and 777. We are thrilled with how well these additional blocks integrate into our flagship Pinot noir from the Sangiacomo Vineyard.
Situated on Roberts Road at the western base of Sonoma Mountain, climate is key to this vineyard's ability to produce outstanding Pinot noir. Cool ocean breezes and Petaluma Gap fog keep the heat in check. For the 2009 vintage, the weather remained cool and moderate, allowing for a long, even growing season, resulting in mature flavors with ideal natural acidity. Once again the Sangiacomo Vineyard Pinot noir stands out.
