Siduri Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013
Wine EnthusiastAromas of rose petals and fresh-hoed earth come to the fore as this wine opens, followed by fine-grained, intense tannins and savory wooded notes. Black pepper, red cherry, sea salt and dried herb pop at different times. It's still tight, so let this wine open in the glass or decant; better yet, cellar through 2023. Cellar Selection.
Wine AdvocateFrom the well-known site in the AVA Fort Ross-Seaview, the 2013 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard has a dark ruby color and a lovely nose of red and blackcurrants, a touch of sour cherries intermixed with herbaceousness, damp earth and spice. The wine is medium-bodied, ripe and complex. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
Wine SpectatorA savory style, with dusty, loamy, crushed rock notes amid dried berry and cedary flavors. More subtle than assertive. Drink now. 196 cases made.
