Sojourn Wine Cellars (Sonoma)

Sojourn Cellars tasting roomJust off the main square in the City of Sonoma, I stumbled upon a little bungalow that houses the Sojourn Cellars tasting room.  Sojourn’s 2007 Sonoma Coast Gaps Crown Pinot Noir had received great ratings from Wine Spectator, and I had no idea they had a tasting room in Sonoma.

Although tastings are by appointment only, I walked in randomly, and it so happened that they had a spot available.  I’m really happy they could squeeze me in, as Sojourn has created a very comfortable and different tasting room experience.  First, they limit the number of people, meaning more time for questions.  Second, they sit you down at a long table, and pour out four of their pinots side-by-side, giving you a perfect chance to taste most f the wines in their  portfolio.  And they topped that off by pouring a few of their Cabs (which were tasty, but drank a bit more like a zin than a cab).  Finally, one of their assistant wine makers hosted the tasting, and deftly answered questions about the winery and the vineyards they source from.

Knowledgeable staff, laid back setting, and tasty 90+point wines — what’s there not to love about that combination?
