Our second vintage of working with the acclaimed fruit of Hirsch Vineyard, located in the Fort Ross-Seaview region of the Sonoma Coast. The difference in flavor profile between Sonoma Coast and Anderson Valley Pinot Noir is clear in the aromatics and mouth. A much more red fruit driven wine, abundant flavors of sweet Alpine strawberry, raspberry, and kirsch are complemented with subtle hints of cinnamon and clove. The cool days and mild nights lead to the development of the rich tannins, building a luxurious mouthfeel that carries the bright, fresh, red fruit flavors through the long finish.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This wine is made of a blend of Dijon 777 and Pommard clones from two different blocks at the acclaimed Hirsch Vineyard, located less than three miles from the Pacific Ocean on the Sonoma Coast.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested September 13 at an average of 24.3° Brix. It then went through a five day cold soak at 50°F, an eight day uninoculated primary fermentation peaking at 92°F, and a fourteen day extended maceration. The wine was aged fifteen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels, 42% of which were new. Coopers include Rousseau, François Frères and Billon.
