Sojeau Vineyard, planted by Denny and Thelma Peseau, sits on the southern end of the Eola-Amity Hills, facing southwest towards the Van Duzer Corridor. At 650 feet in elevation, the site overlooks the valley and surrounding farmlands from its perch on the steep hill. This aspect makes Sojeau one of our coolest sites, with acidity and aromatics favorably affected by the intense coastal winds. The 15-acre block of Pinot noir is divided into two blocks from which we get 20 rows in a cross-section, allowing us to share the full potential of Sojeau’s clonal depth and soil diversity. 

On the nose, this wine is bursting with notes of sweet red and black cherry and layered with spices showing savory sarsaparilla, raw cocoa, and tobacco. The palate is concentrated with notes of bolete mushroom, black plum, violet, and rose and has delicate yet gripping tannins that lead to a vibrant and intensely mineral finish.
