Wine Advocate | Rating: 94Deep ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is intensely scented of crushed raspberries and blackberries with a pretty perfume of violets, wild thyme and mossy bark. Light to medium-bodied, the intensity of flavors is nicely juxtaposed by the ethereal elegance, with soft, fine grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with lingering earthy notes. 700 cases were made.Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
JamesSuckling.com | Rating: 94Lots of forest fruits on the nose with dried strawberries too. Hot stones. Full body, round and polished tannins, and a sleek and a minerally finish. Steely. Lightly austere. Drink now.Author: James Suckling
Vinous | Rating: 95The 2014 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is powerful and yet also quite seductive, with striking inner sweetness and aromatic intensity. A wine of total finesse and nuance, the Hirsch is showing beautifully today. Silky tannins round things out nicely. This is an especially refined vintage for the Hirsch.Author: Antonio Galloni
