Summer Dreams Stargazing Pinot Noir 2021


When you’re Jayson Woodbridge, you always have to keep it interesting. Especially when you already own every accolade under the sun.

His smashing success with his brand, Hundred Acre (40+ perfect 100-point scores and counting), propelled him to worldwide stardom. Then, he followed that up with a successful spinoff for a slightly more affordable look with ‘Fortunate Son.’

But not surprisingly, the man who has accomplished so much already in Cabernet Sauvignon looks to ‘earn his chops’ with the ultimate winemaker’s grape: Pinot Noir.

Of course, Hundred Acre is already firmly established as a cult brand—the crazy long waitlist, the wine prices! Life is good for Woodbridge.

But with his ‘Summer Dreams’ project, he sets out to compete with the likes of ‘Sea Smoke,’ Marcassin, and Arnot Roberts for the ultimate Sonoma Coast Pinot cult status and show that his skills have no bounds.

Utilizing micro-vineyard blocks, the ‘Stargazing’ Pinot is Woodbridge’s lone ‘affordable’ Pinot in the deep waters of Sonoma Coast collectibles. Call it his effort to make at least one wine that can be ‘had’ by at least some folks outside of the ‘anything Jayson Woodbridge’ allocation list.

Leading off the Pinot Noirs, the 2021 Pinot Noir Stargazing has bright cherry and darker raspberry notes supported by classy oak, peppery herbs, and spicy nuances. It’s medium-bodied, fresh, focused, has fine tannins, and a great finish. It picks up some complex sassafras and floral notes with time in the glass. There’s so much to love here.

95 Points, Lisa Perotti-Brown
The 2021 Stargazing Pinot Noir is medium ruby-purble in color. The nose opens with evocative notes of cranberry sauce, redcurrant jelly, and stewed rhubarb followed by nuances of lavendar and underbrush. The full-bodied palate is electric with energy, delivering bursts of red berries, earthy accents, and floral notes framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and a racy backbone, finishing long and tingly.
