The 2012 Rodgers Creek 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.

"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."
