Craig Haserot and Erich Bradley got to know each other playing tennis and soon discovered a mutual love for wine, which led to the founding of Sojourn Cellars and the production of their first vintage in 2001. Over the years, Sojourn has built a reputation on top-quality fruit and meticulous, natural winemaking. This 2012 Pinot Noir, from two vineyards in the Russian River Valley, was fermented with natural yeast and aged in French oak. You’ll be blown away by the vibrancy of the bouquet, the silkiness of the texture, and the incredible depth of the flavor.

The Vineyards
Our 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of two vineyards and again offers a beautiful expression of the varietal and the cool climate and loamy soils in which it excels. Wohler Vineyard Pinot Noir clones 828 and Wadensville 2A form the foundation of the wine, providing lush textures and earthy notes. In 2011, we introduced Riddle Vineyard Mt. Eden and Pommard clones to the blend and have used this again in 2012. Located in Green Valley, Riddle is a young vineyard with exceptional goldridge soils and sits high up on a ridgetop overlooking many of the iconic Pinot Noir vineyards in the region. The resulting blend has a firm, balanced structure and multiple layers of dark red fruit and earth.
