Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Rodgers Creek Vineyard is well-suited for Pinot noir, sitting high on a ridge in the heart of the Petaluma Gap and taking the full brunt of wind and thick fog that defines this cool climate zone. Sojourn's blocks within the vineyard are western-facing with broad sun exposure. In the warm 2012 vintage, this exposure to the elements was a key factor in allowing the grapes to hang and achieve complex flavors and ripe tannins. The resulting wine is a fabulous expression of the vineyard site and unique soils. It is a showy wine - very expressive and forward, with smooth textures and a lingering finish. Familiar aromas of mushroom and soy overlay layers of red fruit flavors, earth and hints of rosemary.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby color; bright, ripe cherry aromas with earthy notes; complex, deep, bright cherry flavors with earthy, forest floor notes; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep complex Pinot with great structure. "
94 Points

"Sojourn’s dark ruby-hued 2012 Pinot Noir Rodger’s Creek Vineyard comes from a site located in the icy cold Petaluma Gap region. Completely made from clone 777, and fermented with 100% stems, it exhibits notes reminiscent of cherry pie, plums, cranberries and a hint of wild strawberries. It cuts a broad swath across the palate, but it does not reveal a lot of weight, tannin or forcefulness. This beautifully rich, pure Pinot Noir offers abundant notes of cloves, apple skins and cherries. Displaying a striking similarity to a top premier cru from Burgundy, it can be drunk now and over the next decade. "
92 Points

"Silky and smooth with bright cherries and cranberries and savory notes of spice and earth; elegant, pure and classic."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
