"The 2014 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is a total knock-out. Dark, rich and explosive, the 2014 possesses magnificent depth and pedigree to burn. The flavors are dense, sweet and wonderfully nuanced throughout. A wine of extraordinary, almost Nebbiolo-like aromatic intensity and firm tannin, the Hirsch is going to need at least a few years to unwind, but it is very clearly a special wine. Hints of rose petal, mint and sweet red berry linger on the long, enticing finish." –Feb-16
Failla has been working with David Hirsch since 2001. Considered a true California “Grand Cru,” this vineyard represents one of the most distinctive sites in the Sonoma Coast. A close neighbor to the Estate Vineyard and planted along the San Andreas Fault, each block offers different soils, slopes and expositions thus providing a fascinating and nuanced expression of this remarkable terroir.
