2010 Hirsch "West Ridge" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1194838 92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark This stylish and very carefully crafted wine is proof enough that Pinot Noir does not need high ripeness to succeed, but whereas many low-alcohol efforts are thin and anemic, this one is alive and confidently fruited with a fine depth, very good focus and an irresistible sense of freshness. It is at first silky in feel yet firms and gets a lift in brightness as its youthful acidity cuts in, and it is neither stiff nor it is cut off at the finish. It will make a lovely match now with milder red meats, duck or salmon steaks, but it looks good to go for at least four or five years and should gain in interest and grace as it ages. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (2/2013)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Pinot Noir West Ridge comes across as weightless and even a bit ethereal next to the East Ridge. Sweet floral notes meld into savory herbs, dried cherries and licorice. Today, the 2010 appears to be best suited to near and medium-term drinking given its mid-weight structure. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby color. Fragrant, spice- and mineral-accented aromas of dried red fruits and fresh rose, with a deeper black cardamom nuance emerging with aeration. Sappy and light on its feet, offering sweet raspberry and redcurrant flavors with great precision and a refreshingly bitter edge. Finishes brisk and long, with lingering spiciness and silky tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2013)
