Hirsch Vineyards

San Andreas Fault Pinot Noir 2015

If you follow me on Delectable, it’s no secret that I’m a fan of Hirsch. I usually like to let them age 8-10 years, but occasionally I open one sooner. Tonight was the first time I had checked in on the 2015 vintage. What a wonderful surprise. It had bright, crunchy red fruit on the palate, well balanced acidity, and a long, long finish that rolled over the tongue in eminently satisfying layers. The nose immediately leapt from the glass with both floral and earthy notes. Glad I opened this one. Will open another soon! — 10 days ago

16’s in a great place. Nose or sugar snap peas, glorious minerals. Trademark laible florals. Herbal. So aromatic. A few years does wonders! Juicy, savory, herbal and exceedingly mineral, with insane texture and compactness. Insanely pure and delicious. Forget about all your Laible and let it age. — a month ago

Salamander Chardonnay 2018

Clean scent. Complex, quick wine that darts around between flavors. Crisp green apple; lightly mineral; floral (chamomile?); very drawn out citric acid/warhead candy finish. Oily/viscous texture. — 2 months ago

Electric! Wow what acid. Insane purity. Floral like nothing else. Kumquat, white flowers, tree bark, crushed rocks, mulch, lime zest, candied lemons, so complex, it’s crazy. Huge acid, huge depth, huge minerals, huge extract, so elegant, confectionary, pure, clean. So so so so good. Perfect, fruit, mineral, everything. — 3 months ago
