RATINGS

93Vinous / IWC

...deep and inward, yet retains the very classic mid-weight Hirsch expression of structure. Dark cherry, plum, spice and soft, enveloping contours give the wine its ample shape. Sweet floral and savory herb overtones grace the exquisite finish.

93Wine Enthusiast

...wonderful complexity, medium body and a broad supple texture that make it a pleasure to taste...spicy lightly earthy aromas, plenty of raspberry, red cherry and rhubarb for fruit flavors, and a good sense of layering on the palate, followed by a long finish.

PRODUCER

Hirsch Vineyards

Hirsch Vineyards is on the Sonoma Coast. It was established in 1980 when David Hirsch began growing Pinot Noir and making wine. The estate today is still owned and operated by Hirsch, his wife and daughter. The estate makes Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast

Sonoma Coast AVA runs from San Pablo Bay in the south to Mendocino County in the north. It includes 7,000 vineyard acres and earned AVA status in 1987. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean means it gets double the rainfall of nearby inland appellations and the ocean gives the appellation a relatively cool climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can thrive in these conditions, and there are numerous producers making critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
