Another successful 2011 from this winery, in fact the best of their six new Pinots. Shows the brilliant acidity and light, delicate texture of the coast, with the concentrated fruit, cola and spice flavors this esteemed vineyard is noted for. Highly complex and dry, it's delicious to drink now, and should age well for a good six years.
Marginally riper and a bit more ambitious than its two partners, the Gap's Crown Pinot makes Sojourn's efforts in 2011 a clean sweep of success. Although slightly bigger, it is no simple study in ripeness, and its deep, well-defined, long-lasting flavors are fixed first on fruit. It is very well-balanced with a firm streak of acidity that, if anything, provides a bit too much stiffening just now, and we do not see the wine hitting full stride for another few years at the least.
Bright ruby. Pungent, sexy aromas of blackberry, mulberry, Indian spices and candied rose. Appealingly sweet and spicy, with a lush, velvety texture and very good depth to its cherry-cola and dark berry flavors. Shows supple tannins on the spicy, very long finish, with the cola and floral notes repeating. (ST)
