Hirsch Reserve Pinot Noir

David Hirsch dreamed for many years of making a Reserve Pinot Noir from his vineyard. Since the first Reserve in 2009, Hirsch has endeavored to capture the most complete and powerful expression of the vineyard through selecting the finest and oldest vineyard blocks for this wine.

Lying adjacent to the great San Andreas Fault on the extreme western Sonoma Coast, Hirsch Vineyards is a single vineyard comprised of 61 distinct farming blocks. These blocks cover an area of 72 acres, resulting in a degree of fragmentation that is unmatched even by the famously subdivided vineyards of Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits. Each block was individually planted based on its unique combination of soil, exposure and topography, and each is farmed, harvested and vinified separately.

This process enables Hirsch to evaluate each farming block separately, and to select only the best barrels from the most expressive vineyard blocks for the Reserve Pinot Noir.

The 2020 possesses high-toned red fruit, with notes of ripe strawberries, plum skin and sour cherries. With air, the nose opens to reveal orange peel, sage, anise and forest floor. On the palate, the fruit is delicate yet persistent; the tannins are long and elegant. This is a complex, complete wine that will benefit from air and time.
