Description

The San Andreas Fault is Hirsch Vineyards’ signature Pinot Noir and is crafted to represent the entirety of this multifaceted vineyard. The 2014 San Andreas Fault has fruit from more than 30 of Hirsch's 61 distinct farming blocks, more than any other wine made from the Hirsch Vineyard. It is the flagship wine from Hirsch, and the wine that represents the summation of this complex vineyard.
95 Points Wine & Spirits - San Andreas is the wine that represents the entire Hirsch estate, from the ocean-influenced west ridge to the sun-warmed east ridge; in 2014, it draws from 30 of the vineyard’s 61 farming blocks. It has an undeniable sense of place, capturing coastal breezes and thin sedimentary ridgetop soils in the tight weave of its tannins—the fruit caught halfway between cherry and stone, cool and shady, yet hinting at vibrant rays of sunshine. You can access its complex floral spice now, but it’s still mostly structure, nowhere near maturity. Floral, foggy and mineral, it’s a wine you’ll want to taste in another decade.
91 Points Wine Enthusiast - A toasty wood-smoke aroma meets firm, vivid and rather tart fruit flavors in this medium-bodied, elegant and cerebral wine. It has firm structure and good balance, as finegrained tannins and tangy acidity support the redcherry and raspberry flavors.
