2013 Hirsch "East Ridge" Estate Pinot Noir
The 2013 East Ridge Estate Pinot Noir is a selection of the very best barrels from the oldest blocks on the east ridge, a topographically distinct micro-site within the Hirsch Vineyard. Sloping into a steep canyon on the east side of Hirsch, it is planted to the heritage pinot noir clones of Mount Eden, Swan and Pommard.
The ideal growing conditions in 2013 produced gorgeous, aromatic wines. The pinot noirs are charming and delicious now, and you will be hard pressed to resist enjoying them young. However they may also be cellared for some years, and will only grow in complexity and subtlety with age.
