RATINGS

98Jeb Dunnuck

...rich with mineral earth, sage, cedar, and black cherry...palate is by far the most generous of the Hirsch wines, with mouth-filling fruit that carries through the mid-palate and finish. It has a more assertive nature all around and is the most powerful of the Hirsch selections.

97+ The Wine Advocate

...deep core of dark red fruit...spicy aromas of dried cranberries and red cherries, peppercorn, garrigue, citrus peel and bitters, with a structure that balances powerful flavor and juicy freshness.

97Wine Enthusiast

...powerfully graceful, delicate and complex. White pepper, stem and strong tannin structure provide a savory seriousness that is lifted and lengthened by intensively focused acidity and mineral-like wisps of stone and sea.

96James Suckling

...cherries, strawberries and roses on the nose. Some watermelon, too. Full-bodied with firm, racy tannins that are long and beautiful. The wine has so much length and beauty. Floral and subtle, yet driven, with pure fruit and balance. White pepper.

94+ Vinous / IWC

Rose petal, lavender, spice and gravel linger. Pommard and Waydensvil clone Pinot on Boomer-Mendocino soils are magical here.

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.
