The 2017 Reserve continues this tradition, bringing together the finest barrels from the vintage to create a wine of dark fruit complimented by savory, earthy aromatics. Classic Hirsch tannins provide backbone and gravitas. A highly ageable wine worthy of contemplation and patience.

Light, fresh and vibrant, sliced strawberries with a rose-perfume edge. Very fragrant and such a pure expression of pinot. The palate has succulent and juicy acidity with super fine tannins. The real idea of a reserve with such juicy and pure fruit on the palate. Long, fine and elegant tannins here. Great definition. Elegant and fragrant with gently earthy depth. Drink or hold.

Focused and structured, with precise red currant, cherry and plum tart flavors that are supported by vibrant acidity. Ripe minerality emerges midpalate, leading to a finish featuring lingering toasty accents. Drink now through 2025. 735 cases made.

Lastly, the 2017 Pinot Noir Reserve Estate is a cellar selection from the best terroirs in the vineyard. It has a darker fruited style (blackberries, black cherries) as well as beautiful spice, savory herbs, loamy earth, and floral nuances. Medium-bodied and elegant, with impressive tannins (they're not 2016 tannins, but they're ripe and polished), this balanced, already complex, layered Pinot Noir can be drunk today with incredible pleasure or cellared for over a decade. All these 2017 Hirsch Pinot Noisr remind me slightly of 2011 red Burgundies with their sunny yet also savory profiles.

Hirsch's 2017 Pinot Noir Estate Reserve is light and lacking in both depth and structure. Here, too, the wine feels shocked by heat and not fully formed. Angular tannins and washed out fruit only reinforce that impression. Drink it up.
