Failla Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
The 2018 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is a wine of dramatic and exquisite beauty. Soaring aromatics lead into a core of sweet red/purplish berry fruit. There is a level of depth to the Hirsch that is just remarkable. If opened young, the 2018 needs a good bit of air to allow a hint of reduction to blow off. The Hirsch is deceptive in its mid-weight feel, but it has tremendous depth and structure to burn. I especially admire its crystal-clear focus and transcendental beauty.
Closed and in need of 2-3 years of bottle age, the 2018 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard reveals a medium ruby hue as well as a savory bouquet wild strawberries, mulled raspberries, dried earth, and flowery incense. With medium-bodied richness, a layered, balanced mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and a great finish, I don't think it's going to match the 2017, but it certainly has plenty of potential.
The 2018 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard has a medium ruby-purple color and opens with some sulfury, tarry tones on the nose that obscure the fruit. The palate hints at juicy berry fruits, with a firm, grippy frame and finish. 600 cases produced.
