The West Ridge Pinot Noir is a selection of the most exceptional barrels from six of the finest and oldest blocks on West Ridge. These are planted to the heritage pinot noir selections of Swan, Mount Eden and Pommard-Wädenswil. The West Ridge is produced 100% from the single vineyard of Hirsch.

The 2014 Pinot Noir Estate West Ridge is powerful and incisive, with deceptive power and plenty of tannic underpinning. Bright red cherry, kirsch, orange zest and rose petal notes give the wine its exotic personality. Constantly changing in the glass, the 2014 is beautiful, beguiling and intriguing. The 2014 is exotic and eccentric, not to mention full of personality.

The 2014 Pinot Noir West Ridge comes from a series of hilltop vineyard blocks along the west ridge of the vineyard and is a barrel selection from the top six parcels. This light ruby-colored effort offers a terrific perfume of light strawberry and raspberry fruits as well as hints of spring flowers, forest floor, and some loamy soil notes. Elegant, medium-bodied, ethereal, and lightly textured, it's beautifully balanced and about as gulpable as they come. Drink this charming effort over the coming 7-8 years.

Lean and dry on the palate, this medium-bodied wine has a subtle concentration of red-fruit flavors and fine layers of mineral and spice that unfold on the palate. Grown on a pioneering property along the Sonoma Cost, it will be best after 2020.
