2010 Hirsch Vineyards San Andreas Fault Estate Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., $60. Release fall 2013. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Oak-dominated nose of coffee and dark caramel scents. Elegant, with light weight cherry and cranberry flavors backed by toasty oak and noticeable tannins. The delicate fruit is buried in oak at present but this should resolve to some degree with more time in bottle. Good (+). Reviewed June 23, 2013
