Sojeau Vineyard is a small hidden gem of a vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills. This wine is a “field blend” of Pommard/Wädenswil/115 out of a few select rows that harkens one back to a small but stately Burgundian vineyard in a simpler time. The wine is an opulent, red-fruit-driven Pinot noir with ripe bing and Rainier cherry overtones complemented by a hint of cola on the finish.
