SOJOURN Pinot Noir 2021 (Sonoma Coast, California)

SOJOURN Pinot Noir 2021

(Sonoma Coast, California) $41

A sommelier friend of ours calls Pinot Noirs like this “steakhouse Pinots”—meaning they’re big, lip-smacking, bursting with fruit, and yes, powerful enough to stand up to a grilled steak. (In other words, Burgundy lovers, this may not be your cup of tea.) But Sojourn’s Pinot is just so downright hedonistic that we couldn’t help but be won over by it. And the yum factor is as palpable as a bowl of cool crunchy cherries and raspberries drizzled with kirsch. (In an ever-increasing sea of $100 California Pinots, Sojourn’s less-than-$50 price feels nice.) Founded in 2001, Sojourn Cellars is now owned by winemaker Angelina Mondavi, one of the fourth generation of that famous California clan. Time to fire up the grill.
