    June 13, 2017 - Now in its prime. But not in any danger of going away anytime soon.

    January 19, 2017 - 13.9% alcohol. Surprisingly black cherry color. Stunning nose -- the picture of Pinot cherry fruit, with earthy notes backing it up. Probably even more compelling in the mouth. Bursting with glorious black cherry fruit and lighter notes of earth and baking spice. Bright acidity and a long, juicy finish. Stunningly good. A

    October 25, 2016 - The combination of Hirsch and a cool season create a wonderful burgundian Pinot. I'm always a big fan of wines from this location, as there is such a great expression of terroir.

    July 10, 2016 - Delicious. Very tasty. Went well with turkey burgers.

  • Swaggering Beaunie Likes this wine: (93 points)

    January 10, 2016 - This wine made a stellar showing at our dinner party of 1/10/2016 (decanted 3 hours prior to dinner for one hour, then returned to the bottle). It was intensely floral and very feminine, with a strong midpalate and a persistent finish. One would never know that 2011 was a difficult vintage in California from this wine; best 2011 Pinot I've had. Everyone was impressed.
