Hirsch Vineyards Raschen Ridge Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
The 2016 Pinot Noir Estate Raschen Ridge is one of the more overt wines in the range. Ample, broad and creamy, it is wonderfully expressive today. The 40% whole clusters are not especially evident; what comes through most is the wine's textural resonance and breadth. Dark cherry, plum, spice and new leather build into the generous, nuanced finish.
A tightly wrapped, minerally style, with hints of graphite to the dried red fruit and spice flavors. Crisp, showing savory snap and details of dried green herbs and underbrush. Best from 2020 through 2024. 413 cases made.
