A brilliant wine. Racy in acidity, silky in texture, yet powerful..great fruity ripeness in the cherry, Dr. Pepper cola, licorice and bacon flavors..wild, forest quality of grilled mushrooms, thyme and fennel...divine expression of Hirsch..
Dark cherry and dried rose on the nose...smoke and sassafras notes...Chewy and youthfully backward right now, slowly unfurling to offer bitter cherry and dark berry skin flavors...Give this lots of air if you're tempted to open one...
Made in a more masculine, peppery, earthy, Pommard-like style, the medium to full-bodied, rich, substantial...2007 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard reveals good acidity as well as ripe tannin. It should be very long-lived, possibly 10-15 years.
