Community Tasting Notes (5) Avg Score: 94.4 points

  • One hour decant plus an hour slow-o in bottle. Deep garnet color, slightly cloudy. Soaring nose of dark red and black fruits with lower toned earthy notes - complex aromatics are a highlight. Enormous fruit on palate, hints of red but mostly dark fruited profile, some spice, a bit of vanilla or creaminess, touch of heat, medium plus acidity. Very long finish. Big boned structure should allow to age for several years to come.

  • Deep garnet to plum color, cloudy appearance (no filtration) adds to its earthiness. Scent is full of red and black fruit, with a deep inner core of Burgundian cassis, port and ethereal raisiny goodness. Hints of woodfire smoke, mushroom and forest floor. Beautiful fresh and juicy mouthfeel, with lush fruit again surrounding a core of refinement. A pleasure -- but give it 2-3 more years and it will be even better.

  • 14.3% alcohol. Beautiful, distinctive, complex aromatics - if somewhat brooding and deeper pitched - with notions of black cherry, wild raspberry, licorice, Asian spices, sandalwood, earth, and iron. Equally exciting in the mouth with a silky texture and impressive concentration, depth/range, structure, and balance, and length. Terrific wine. Dinner at Sea Change.

  • The Wine Enthusiast recently posted their top picks for 2013, and were chosen to fill their #2 spot. The 2010 Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir*, which was released last fall, is the only Pinot Noir to be found in the top 10 wines on their list. Click here to see the entire line-up.

  • Far and away the best WS wine I've had. I've also been a big fan of Hirsch's San Andreas pinot. There is a remarkable likeness between the two. Juicy, balanced, with layers of flavor beyond fruit notes. Gorgeous nose.
