The 2014 Block 8 Estate Pinot Noir is from one of the finest parcels at Hirsch. It is our only block with soils predominantly from the Boomer (Mendocino) formation.  It is characterized by a reddish tint from high amounts of iron oxide, and the rock and gravel content in the soil averages 55-70% throughout. This results in superb drainage, allowing the roots to run deep and pervasive. Block 8 is divided into 5 sub-parcels, all planted in 1993 to the heritage pinot noir clone of Pommard mixed with Wädenswil. It produces wines with intense but elegant tannins, concentrated fruit at moderate alcohol levels, lithe acidity and complex aromatics. 

The 2014 Block 8 Estate Pinot Noir has plush fruit, well-integrated tannins, charming aromatics, and that ineffable Block 8 character. In this wine you will find a pure and focused expression of one of the most unique sections of the Hirsch Vineyard.

Wine Profile
Other Notes
David Hirsch considers Block 8 to be one of the finest sections of the Hirsch Vineyard, calling it his grand cru block. It has long seduced us with its power, complexity and singular character, and it is our only single block bottling in the 2014 vintage.
