The Hirsch Family Blend Estate Pinot Noir is our selection of the most delicious and happiness-inducing barrels from the vintage. This wine has the drinkability and lustiness of our Bohan Dillon Pinot, but with heightened concentration and complexity. 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.

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.

The 2020 Family Blend is grounded in Block 8, which makes up 30% of the blend and imparts concentrated, black cherry fruit and notes of ripe plum skin. Block 6, an old Swan parcel on the West Ridge, is 25% of the blend; it gives the wine elegance and an aromatic intensity. Blocks 23 and 25 are responsible for the wine’s structure and notable spiciness. Last but not least, the 30-year-old Block 11 imparts charm and juiciness to the wine.

Serving
We recommend decanting this wine for one hour before drinking, if opened within 1-2 years of release.
