1.5 Liters. This is a pretty and lighter bodied iteration of the Hirsch vineyard, think Volnay this year. The nose shows ripe bing cherry, a hit of cola, slate minerality, and a light oak spice. The palate is light bodied with strawberry, bing cherry, minerals and light oak notes. Lovely easy going style here D&M Tasting Notes
The San Andreas Fault is Hirsch Vineyards’ signature Pinot Noir and is crafted to represent the entirety of this multifaceted vineyard. The 2016 San Andreas Fault has fruit from 33 distinct farming blocks. It is the flagship wine from Hirsch, and the wine that represents the summation of our complex vineyard.
Over 37 years of farming and winemaking on the True Sonoma Coast, David Hirsch’s accumulated wisdom has shown us that the dominant influence on our farming and winemaking is the San Andreas Fault, which lies just half a mile from the Hirsch Vineyard. The wine that captures the complexity, power and energy of this geologic phenomenon is our San Andreas Fault Estate Pinot Noir, the wine that David calls “the Hirsch Hirsch”. Winery Notes.
