...deep, pliant and super-expressive, within the Hirsch style, of course. There is lovely texture and resonance to the red cherry, plum and blood orange fruit. Crushed rose petal, chalk, mint and orange zest flesh out in this delicate, understated, super-classy Pinot.

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.
