2016 Sojourn Cellars Pinot Noir Sangiacomo Vineyard

California | Pinot Noir
"Sangiacomo Vineyard on Roberts Road near Cotati is Sojourns flagship Pinot noir vineyard. We have been sourcing fruit from this vineyard since the 2004 vintage and feel very grateful to the Sangiacomo Family for their longstanding commitment to realizing the potential of this special site. The vineyard was originally developed in 1998 on an old creekbed. Several factors combine to make this an extraordinary site for growing world-class Pinot noir: well-draining soils, climate, and clonal diversity. The vineyard is located in a depression at the western base of Sonoma Mountain where cool air and fog from the Pacific Ocean get trapped, especially in the summer and fall, allowing for uncommon hangtime without sacrificing acidity and balance. Dijon clones 115 and 777 combine with Pommard and Swan to consistently produce distinctive wines."
