      The 2012 Pinot Noir Estate San Andreas Fault is fresh, floral and lifted in style, with lifting fruit and good overall balance. The high-acid style of the vintage at Hirsch comes through in spades. Crushed flowers, savory herbs, iron and a host of saline-infused notes flow through to the finish. The 2012 comes across a bit compact, with hints of reduction that mask the fruit. Today, the overall impression is of angularity.

  • David Hirsch is a pioneer of pinot growing on the rugged Sonoma Coast. He planted his Old Vineyard on an ocean vista ridge-top in 1980 and sold his premium pinot and chardonnay in the decades that followed, building a reputation of excellence. Focus has always been site-specific, with wines made to highlight the uniqueness of the Sonoma Coast. In 2002 David and his wife Marie began their own winery in order to explore for themselves the possibilities of their Wine Spectator-dubbed a grand cru site, which had grown considerably from the original plantings. The production of their Estate wines is now beginning to expand, but remains limited. They also make a second wine called Bohan-Dillon, named for their road.
