Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

2012 vintage. Expressive nose. Still medium body. A big spearmint/eucalyptus/blue fruit note trill directly in the center of the tasting proceedings. Plenty of spice as well, yet, above all, a sense of harmony. One of the better post-1994 WS pinots that I've had. 3-4 years more in the current state before things slide/morph/dwindle. 5.13.23. — 15 days ago

East Ridge Pinot Noir 2016

I’m at 92-93 here, but the bones here make me think this will likely improve a tad over the next few years. Sorry for the stained label!

This comes across as very Burgundian. Very little, if any, whole cluster use (which surprised me a bit). Translucent ruby in the glass. Brambly and slightly medicinal aromatically. Herb crusted strawberries and raspberries too. Sub 13% ABV, so this is light and refreshing, but it has more tannic bite on the finish than expected. High acidity. Definitely a food wine. Oak is untraceable. Very pure and vibrant red fruits, with black tea and plenty of red and purple floral notes. Enjoy now with a decant.

Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

@Delectable Wine : This is the Under the Wire Hirsch Vineyard Blanc de Noir, not a rosé.

I bought this as it was advertised as a rosé, but it’s just a Blanc de noir. Thankfully, it was a tasty mistake.

Killer fruit in the hands of MTP makes for a delicious bubbly. Opened alongside a 2019 Carboniste BdN as a comparison of Cali bubbles, they were on opposite sides of the spectrum. This UTW Hirsch was more big-house in profile whereas the Carboniste had a grower vibe. Pours almost orange in the glass. Fairly yeasty. Honeyed and orange marmalade. There is a perception of semi-high dosage here, but I’m thinking it’s due to how ripe the fruit is. Extremely creamy and layered. I’d be curious to know how these are at release, but this seems to be aging beautifully. Pop for freshness, but it’s not falling off a cliff any time soon.

It’s smooth. Not super high proof so that’s part of it but it’s also just delicious. — 3 months ago

@Dave Parker Heads up It’s listed as the Chardonnay.

Zöbinger Riesling 2019

Blind tasting no2. We all immediately pegged this as old world Riesling. The tell tale signs of petrol and dried apricot gave it away entirely. But we all missed Austria. Probably need to learn more about differences in common Riesling areas.

Clear and bright straw yellow with powerful petrol fumes. Off dry but medium-high acidity with a low-medium body. Dried apricots with some slate completely dominate the flavors. It’s not complex, but has a good finishing length. Riesling for certain. Austria? Wouldn’t know!
