Community Tasting Notes 7

    February 8, 2016 - Drank with John and Jeanne. Very aromatic wine with all sorts of red fruit on the nose. Bigger than I expected on the palate, where it was again all abut red fruit. Acid was good, but I guess I was anticipating that the wine would have more in the way of non-fruit elements. Still, very good.

    September 12, 2015 - Wonderful wine. Very aromatic, cherry, orange rind, spices on the nose. Medium body, smooth texture and long aftertaste. Not over the top and beautifully balanced. One of the best Californian Pinots I had in a while. Wish I had more of this...

    March 16, 2012 - Big california pinot with typical cherry and red fruit on the nose. Hints of meat. Obviously unfilterd and unfined. Palate to match the nose. A bit of a drop in the midpalate, but not overlly distracting. Drinking well now. PDQ92

    May 16, 2011 - Not as varietally pure as the Hirsch version of this Pinot. Still excellent. Big and rich on the nose, smooth across the palate. A little bit of tart cherry, with even some dark, ashy flavors.

    May 16, 2011 - DC Berserkers - West Sonoma Coast - Ruth's Chris Steak House: Served side-by-side with Hirsch's own '07 Pinot Noir. This one is sweeter and more approachable -- with ripe red cherry, ripe rasberries and strawberries, some earthiness, some forest, good amount of sweet spices. On the palate, like the nose, this is more approachable than Hirsch's own. Juicier, too. That said, it wasn't as distinct or complex.
