Failla

Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir

Couldn't find entry, logging Stella Sonoma Coast Pinot 2017 here: 225 and Calera clones. Elevated acidity, med tannins. Cola nuts, faint herbs, red plums, blackberry, med+/elevated concentration, overripe strawberry, black tea bag, lavender, tomato, stony characters. ~13% abv. 2017 was super hot in Sonoma, >100 degree heat spikes in June-July cause vines to shut down, rapid ripening more akin to Oregon of erratic growing season (whereas usually California boasts of constant long growing season). Gravel loam soil. 10-40% whole cluster, hand punchdowns, stem inclusion. Foot treaded. WC raises pH as high acid -> more stem inclusion to balance the pH. Failla picks on pH at ~23-24 Brix which would be a bit too high. — 6 days ago

San Francisco Food Bank Cuvee Pinot Noir 2010

A tad sweet and a little less depth and complexity to warrant a higher rating but yummy for a casual weeknight glass of wine — 5 years ago

Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2000

So stunning for an 18 year old wine! Showing the slightest bit of age, as well as red currant, pomegranate, dried cranberry, dried rosemary, plum sauce, porcini mushroom. Still so much acid, silky smooth palate. Clearly a well-made wine. — 4 years ago

Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Dense, inky, and lush. Brambly dark fruit and just a bit of herbaceousness. This is a bigger Pinot that should keep improving for a while. — 5 years ago

Feel like I'm the last to know about this terrific vintner! Thanks to Joe Hirsch at Ed Hyder's for turning me on to it. Wonderful fruity GSM with a great long finish. Love it! — 6 years ago
