“Our team was dazzled by the ethereal texture and balance of this boutique Pinot. Reminiscent of favorite releases from Pinot legend Kistler as it delivers captivating fresh flavors and complexity including cherry, pomegranate, cranberry, subtle spice and notes of herbal tea.  Burgundian in profile with red plum and savory wild mushroom; the slight saline quality is a testament to the true oceanfront location of the Estate. Gorgeous.” - California Wine Advisors

“The 2018 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is a wine of dramatic and exquisite beauty. Soaring aromatics lead into a core of sweet red/purplish berry fruit. There is a level of depth to the Hirsch that is just remarkable. If opened young, the 2018 needs a good bit of air to allow a hint of reduction to blow off. The Hirsch is deceptive in its mid-weight feel, but it has tremendous depth and structure to burn. I especially admire its crystal-clear focus and transcendental beauty.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
