2011 Hirsch Vineyards The Bohan-Dillon Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., pH 3.48, 1,012, cases, $34. About one-third Hirsch fruit, with the balance from neighbors including Hellenthal, McDougall and Nobles vineyards. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Highly scented with aromas of black cherries, Hoison sauce, spicy oak and rosebud. A lighter but tasty wine with straight forward flavors of black cherries and blue and black berries complimented by cedary oak. The tannins are nicely balanced, the wine is silky on the palate, and the cherry really sings on the finish. Good. Reviewed June 23, 2013
