Made from the highest elevation vineyards at Hirsch, the Raschen Ridge is where our marine, riverine and continental climates meet, merging heat & coolness, moisture and dryness, uplift and erosion. The wine is itself an exercise in resolved opposites: sexy and serious, drinkable and age-worthy, for both the hedonist and the collector.

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.
