2014 Hirsch Vineyards West Ridge Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

12.7% alc., 360 cases, $85. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Initial aromas of mulch and terra cotta lead to aromas of cherry, black raspberry and spice. Discreetly concentrated, earth-kissed flavors of blueberry and cherry with an expansive mouthfeel. There is a note of iron and green pepper as well. Inviting harmony, with firm but integrated tannins, a silky texture, and a modestly generous finish. Score: 90. Reviewed August 6, 2017
