With its abundant aromatics of red cherry and pomegranate, our 2014 Hirsch Pinot is reflective of the fruit-forward nature of this early vintage. Given time in the glass, subtle spice layers — cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove — appear, adding layers of complexity to the wine’s nose. In the mouth, sweet flavors of red cherry are once again most immediately notable, but there is great depth and richness to this delicious expression of cool-climate Pinot Noir from the “True Sonoma Coast.”

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. The vineyard’s high elevation, over 1,400 feet, puts the site above the fog line that consistently hugs the Pacific Coast through the summer months. This results in mild days that produce Pinot Noir noted for its pretty red fruit, floral notes, and elegance.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested on September 2nd and 8th at an average of 24.1° 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 three-to-eight-day extended maceration. The wine was aged sixteen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels, 38% of which were new. Coopers include Rousseau, François Frères, and Billon.
