RATINGS

97Wine Enthusiast

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..

93+ Vinous / IWC

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...

92+ Robert M. Parker Jr.

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.

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.
