Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.3%

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

Rich spices and dark cherry flavors. This vintage has a pure fruit profile, while still showing nuances of mushroom, earth, and Asian spice that dominated the previous vintage.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium-deep ruby color; bright, deep dark cherry aromas with earthy, mushroomy notes; deep, bright cherry fruit flavors with mushroom and earthy notes and sweet oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Earthy, complex Pinot that needs a good hour in the glass—dreamy with some mushroom pasta."
94 Points

"The seventh Pinot Noir, the 2009 Pinot Noir Rodgers Creek (which sits on a high ridge of the Petaluma Windgap) is made from Dijon clone 777. Attractive underbrush and forest/moss notes intermingle with cherry and spice box. The complex aromatics of this dark plum/ruby wine are very Burgundian. The sweetness of fruit, an inner core of depth and richness, as well as the vibrancy and medium to full-bodied mouthfeel result in a complex, intense wine to drink over the next 7-10 years. "
92 Points

"An enticing floral mix of herb, spice, black cherry and wilted rose, this builds intensity and depth, with detailed blackberry, mineral and cedar notes that firm up on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 575 cases made."

Style: Smooth & Supple
Sojourn is consistently a great winery for Pinot Noir. They produce at the quality level of Kosta Browne, but at less than half the price. This wine complex, yet not over-the-top with that sticky fruit feeling that some CA Pinots can have. It has a touch of mineral flavor which is hard to find in CA. I've never had a bad bottle from this winery.

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...
