MAGNUM - 2010 Hirsch 'San Andreas Fault' Estate Pinot Noir
The weather on the Sonoma Coast in 2010 was unprecedented. Daytime fog enveloped the vineyards for much of veraison. This resulted in wines with subtle fruit and a notably earthy, brooding character. Since their youth, they have been less fruit-forward than a typical Hirsch vintage, allowing complexity and terroir to shine through early.
The 2010 San Andreas Fault is a transparent, red-fruited beauty, with the earthy and savory notes that are characteristic of the vintage. The palate is delicate and perfumed. Drink now or within 2-3 years. $310 per magnum
