2021 Hirsch 'Bohan-Dillon' Pinot Noir
David Hirsch was inspired to create the Bohan-Dillon Pinot Noir as an homage to the great village wines of France: a wine full of place and personality, made with the same care and attention as the top wines, yet at a good price.
The Hirsch Vineyards Bohan-Dillon Pinot Noir is produced using the same winemaking methods and with the same attention to detail as our other Pinots, thereby ensuring a wine of great quality, traditional varietal character, and sense of place.
The 2021 Bohan-Dillon is made from three West Sonoma Coast vineyards: Hirsch and Hellenthal, situated contiguous to each other, and the Heintz Ranch. This is the first vintage of Bohan-Dillon to include fruit from Heintz, which we selected due to its storied reputation and our faith in Charlie Heintz, a third generation West County farmer. The Heintz Ranch is located about 20 miles south of Hirsch, just east of the town of Occidental. All three of these vineyards produce wines of character and personality, and together they result in a wine of great integrity and complexity.
The 2021 Bohan-Dillon is remarkably expressive upon opening. Notes of crushed strawberries, Santa Rosa plum, thyme, violets and sage jump out of the glass. The palate is juicy and mouth-filling, with tremendous energy and freshness.
