Winemaker Notes

Our 2016 bottling of the Gap’s Crown Vineyard Pinot noir continues to affirm this vineyard as one of the brightest stars in California. After the 2014’s #35 ranking on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines of 2016, and the 2015’s 95-point score from Robert Parker, the 2016 follows strongly with robust flavors and excellent structure. Much of this wine’s concentration derives from the site’s steep slopes and rocky soils, complemented by severe drought conditions and the tiny berries that resulted. The wine’s signature dark cherry aroma is enhanced by 10% whole cluster fermentation, adding depth and texture for a long complex finish.

Sojourn Cellars

Sojourn Cellars produces highly acclaimed Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wines. We source fruit from celebrated vineyards in both Sonoma and Napa counties, where we work closely with vineyard owners who use world-class growing methods for cultivating grapes of the highest quality. Our hands-off winemaking style allows the character and personality of these special vineyard sites to shine through in the finished wines.

At Sojourn, every single decision we make, every vineyard we work with, every person on our small team, and every hour spent in the winery is done to deliver an extraordinary experience to our customers. We love sharing our wines through the approachable and memorable tasting experiences in our Tasting Salon in Sonoma, as well as sharing our wines with our loyal mailing list members, at our events and in our homes. There’s little in life that surpasses a shared experience with others over a very special glass of wine. In everything we do, our goal is to deliver uniquely memorable wine sojourns.

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Juicy and velvety in texture, this wine shows a wealth of full-bodied oak and tannin up front that settles into lovely characteristics of rose petal, strawberry, rhubarb and forest floor. The finish is lengthy and robust. (VB) 

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard opens with pronounced notions of Black Forest cake, blackberry compote and red plums with nuances of lilacs, underbrush, camphor and oolong tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers concentrated black fruit flavors with a velvety texture and just enough freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note
