    There are 250 cases of the 1999 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard. It possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as a knockout nose of blackberries infused with smoke, mineral, earth, and floral scents. As the wine sits in the glass, add cherries and pepper to the complex concoction of aromas and flavors. The wine is full-bodied as well as spectacularly concentrated, yet exhibits a youthful vibrancy and good underlying acidity. Look for the 1999 Hirsch Vineyard to age well for at least a decade.

    The United States? best Pinots come from the Sonoma Coast. One would have to own a Pinot vineyard in Oregon to think otherwise. The Hirsch vineyard is a popular source of Pinot for producers such as Kistler, Littorai, and Siduri. This wine has a huge nose of freshly hewn wood, over ripe cherry, Robitussin (somewhat Port like), and sweet redwood. Strong and clean on the palate with beguiling length.
