Siduri Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Wine AdvocateAdam's 2012 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is a savory, structured and complex effort that will benefit from short-term cellaring. Pepper, ground herbs, forest floor and gunpowder-like minerality all emerge from this beauty, and it has medium-bodied depth and richness, as well as chewy tannin on the finish. It should be at its best from 2016-2020.
Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. Evoking the richness and slightly tart deliciousness of a strawberry-rhubarb compote, this is a bright, vibrant and chewy Pinot, its dry tannins peaking on the finish. From a great vineyard site long sourced by the producer, it's on the lighter side in terms of body and weight, and may need further time to come into its own, through 2017.
