2017 Hirsch Estate "East Ridge" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Previously $80)

SKU #1471338 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Similarly lightly colored, the 2017 Pinot Noir East Ridge Estate is a richer wine compared to the West Ridge release and has lots of mulberry and riper cherry fruits as well as sappy herbs, tea, and floral notes. It too is medium-bodied, has a touch more ripeness in its fruit as well as bright underlying acidity and firm tannins, which shows the difficulty in the 2017 vintage. While it lacks the balance and symmetry of the West Ridge release, it's still a beautiful wine. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years. Inner quote mark (7/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This offers red cherries, sous bois and sappy, earthy freshness. The palate heads more towards blue fruit with a smooth band of fine pinot tannin and beautifully preserved acidity, holding a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir East Ridge has a perfumed nose of fir, damp earth, black cherries, lavender, oolong tea leaves, dusty character and red berry sparks—savory and earthy. The palate is light to medium-bodied, with concentrated, dark, savory fruits framed by sturdy tannins and great freshness to lift the long, layered finish. 562 cases produced. Jasmine Hirsch is one of the most honest, thoughtful and environmentally astute winemakers I can think of. 2019 marks her first full vintage as winemaker at Hirsch. We walked through parcels planted by her father in 1980 and spoke of the benefits of biodynamic farming, which the estate converted to in 2014. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Selected from parcels along an east-facing ridge on the inland side of the Hirsch Vineyard, this is a dark, rich pinot noir with gentle persimmon flavor. It’s soft and bittersweet, lasting on warm notes of caramel and molasses. Inner quote mark (4/2020)
