2019 Hirsch 'Family Blend' Estate Pinot Noir
To craft the 2019 Family Blend, we selected eight of our most delicious and happiness-inducing barrels from the 2019 vintage. This wine has the drinkability and lustiness of our Bohan Dillon Pinot, but with heightened concentration and complexity.
The 2019 Family Blend includes fruit from the superb Block 15, giving the wine notable structure and concentration. Blocks 23 and 2, two of our most elegant young vineyards, give the wine charm and aromatic complexity. And last but certainly not least, Block 8, one of our finest parcels, imparts power and lusciousness.
The result is a Pinot Noir that combines hedonism with gravitas. While this wine can certainly age, there is tremendous pleasure to be found in the youthful fruit of the Family Blend, so we recommend trying a bottle soon and stocking up – you will not be able to stop drinking this!
We believe this limited selection, available only to our top mailing list customers, will give you great satisfaction at a moderate price.
A note on the label: this is a sketch of David Hirsch, in one of his favorite Hawaiian shirts, enjoying a glass of Hirsch Pinot Noir after a long day in the field. This picture is an encapsulation of David’s character: thoughtful and hard-working, yet ever open to the pleasures of a great bottle of wine.
