2010 Hirsch Vineyards East Ridge Estate Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 240 cases, $N/A. Release fall 2013. From an 18-acre unique microclimate planted to Mt. Eden, Swan and Pommard clones. A selection of the best barrels from the three oldest blocks on the East Ridge. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Exotic aromas of wild berries, wooded forest and a hint of oak. Delicious core of sappy, dark red berry and black cherry fruit. Elegant, polished and smoothly textured, sporting some prominent tannins and oak that will integrate over time. Definitely lighter and less concentrated in this vintage, but a thoroughly pleasing wine. Very good. Reviewed June 23, 2013
