Wine Advocate

92+ Points, Erin Brooks, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Sojourner Vineyard Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple with a nose of black and red cherries and licorice with touches of saline, lilac, bark and bitter peel. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with ripe black fruits and perfumed earth notions, with a great frame of grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing very long and minerally. 425 cases produced." 8/18

Vinous Media

93 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Deep vivid red. Expressive red and blue fruit and potpourri scents are complemented by suggestions of sexy oak spices, musky earth and smoky minerals. Seamless and focused on the palate, showing imprecisely energetic raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that are supported by a core of juicy acidity. Finishes with outstanding persistence, showing sneaky tannins and lingering floral and mineral notes. (30% whole clusters; raised in 35% new French oak barrels for 15 months)" 05/19

John Gilman

91 Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "The Sojourner Vineyard bottling of pinot noir from Walter Scott is the winery's younger vine cuvée, grown in volcanic soils, but the wine is always complex and well-balanced. The 2016 version is just a touch less ripe than the 2015, coming in at 13.4 percent octane and offering up a beautifully red fruity bouquet of cherries, strawberries, a touch of cocoa powder, beetroot, lovely soil tones, fresh herbs and a whisper of oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, tangy and complex, with lovely soil signature, tangy acids, moderate tannins and impressive length and grip on the wide open and bouncy finish. This is really a charmer on both the nose and palate and is already drinking very nicely out of the blocks, but will also age very well over the next twenty years or more. (Drink between 2018-2040)" 8/18 Issue #76
