Very ripe and juicy, displaying lively, vivid plum, black cherry and wild berry fruit that's full-bodied. Picks up red and black licorice and richer berry pie flavors that build depth and intensity. Drink now through 2018.
More herbs, earth, underbrush and forest notes are present in the medium ruby-colored 2009 Pinot Noir Ridgetop Vineyard. This wine has crisp acids, shows more tartness than several of the other cuvees, and comes from an impeccable vineyard source, the Ridgetop Vineyard, managed by Thomas Brown and Fred Schrader, with Ulises Valdez working in the background as well. It is a very cool-climate, high-elevation site, and the wine is feminine and in need of more time to reveal its full personality. Everything is here, and I suspect plenty of complexity will emerge with another year of bottle age, but this was the most challenging Pinot to taste from Sojourn. (RP)
