Hirsch San Andreas Fault Estate, Sonoma Coast, 2017, Pinot Noir

$61.75

The San Andreas Fault is Hirsch Vineyards’ signature pinot noir and is crafted to represent the entirety of this multifaceted vineyard. The 2017 San Andreas Fault has fruit from 28 distinct farming blocks. It is the flagship wine from Hirsch, and the wine that represents the summation of our complex vineyard.

Our 2017 Pinot Noirs are characterized by charming ripe fruit, supple tannins, and a juicy fruit character. The 2017 San Andreas is an ideal wine for drinking at any point over the next ten years: it is wonderfully open and expressive already, with the acidity and backbone to age for some years to come.

Description

Lying adjacent to the San Andreas Fault on the extreme western Sonoma Coast, Hirsch Vineyards is comprised of 72 acres, divided into 67 individual farming blocks. The resulting degree of fragmentation is unmatched even by the famously subdivided vineyards of Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits. Due to the site’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean and the San Andreas Fault, the vineyard has a fearsome diversity of soils, aspects, elevations and microclimates. This complexity defines our farming and winemaking practices: each block was individually developed and is now farmed, harvested and vinified separately.
