Medium-deep ruby color; deep complex dark cherry aromas with spice and dusty notes; ripe complex dark cherry with cinnamon and pie spice notes; silky texture sweet oak; great structure and balance; long finish. Very tight now but also full of flavor and potential-needs time in the bottle.

An up-and-coming hillside vineyard seen more and more in Sonoma is the Gap's Crown Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast. The 2009 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard made from some whole clusters is one of the deeper more saturated ruby-colored Pinot Noirs from Sojourn. Very Burgundian with deep raspberry forest floor and black cherry fruit as well as hints of earth and mineral there is a sense of spring flowers as well in this complex deep rich full-bodied Pinot Noir which is stunning. It has loads of black and red fruits and to me is the most complex of the Pinot Noirs in the Sojourn Cellars portfolio. It is also a blend of the more modern clones 113 114 and 828. Already drinking well with lots of complexity it should continue to do so for 7-8 more years.

Wine Spectator, July 2011
Firm and concentrated with complex dried berry sage fresh earth forest floor underbrush anise and cedar notes tightly bound but increasingly expansive and complex as the finish unfolds. Drink now through 2018.-J.L.

The nose offers abundant red fruit rounded by hints of baking spice. The red fruit continues onto the palate rather seductively with cranberry as well as earthy notes providing the wine's spine. This youthful wine literally jumps out of the glass and should come together quite nicely over the next year. A great example from a deliciously long warm vintage on the Sonoma Coast.
