Wine Spectator | Rating: 88A big, expressive style, with loads of dense, chewy tannins. Packs a wallop of flavor but comes up shy on suppleness, ending with a raw, edgy aftertaste. Drink now through 2021. 525 cases made.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The 2013 Pinot Noir Wohler Vineyard reveals beautiful, sweet, Volnay-like strawberry and wild berry fruit, a lush, hedonistic texture, medium to full body and good purity. It was made from clones 115, 828 and the Wadenswil clone planted in deep Goldridge soils as it is the only Russian River selection in the Sojourn portfolio. With excellent depth and medium to full body, this big-time winner should drink well for 6-9 years.Author: Robert Parker
