2011 Hirsch Vineyard, "The Bohan-Dillon" Pinot Noir, Sonoma

Press and Tasting Notes

On the nose, bright but restrained fruit with notes of hibiscus, spices and forest floor. High-toned red plum and raspberry fruit is tempered by pleasant notes of earth, orange peel and wet stones. The palate is generous and juicy, with long, sensual tannins and a lacy, lithe acidity. Compact, dense, elegant and possessing great structure

THE REVIEW

Perched high on a ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean lies Hirsch Vineyards, home to some of California's finest Pinot Noir.
    Many wineries source their fruit from Hirsch Vineyards in an attempt to boast the Hirsch name, however, few come close to producing the same quality wine.
    The Bohan-Dillon by Hirsch Vineyards was one of our most popular Pinots last year. The 2011 has just arrived and it is so good, it might even be better than the 2010. Its elegant style and bright fruit possess great structure reminiscent of Burgundy. It is nearly impossible to stop at one glass.
    On the nose, vibrant but restrained fruit fills the glass with notes of hibiscus, rose petal, spice and forest floor. High-toned red plum and raspberry fruit is tempered by pleasant notes of earth, orange peel and wet stones. The palate is generous and juicy, with long, sensual tannins and lacy, lithe acidity.
    From salmon to duck to a lean cut of meat, we are confident the new vintage of The Bohan-Dillon will surpass its predecessor in popularity....while it lasts. Enjoy!Read More »
