2014 Sojourn Riddle Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.4% alc., $N/A. Vineyard is located north of Occidental on the second ridge from the Pacific Ocean. Clones are Mt Eden and Pommard planted in sandy loam Goldridge soils. · Moderately dark reddish purple hue in the glass. Beautifully perfumed with hi-tone scents of dark berry jam and Asian 5-spice. Mid weight plus in style with a strong physique, yet charming and nimble. The dark berry core really grabs on to the mid palate and holds through a fruit-laden finish. The wine has a trim oak compliment and a thick yet lubricating texture. Score: 94. Reviewed May 11, 2016 WINERY » ARTICLE »
