Who knows what inspired David Hirsch to plant a Pinot Noir vineyard on a ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the spring of 1980? It was absolutely visionary yet a little crazy to plant vines on the very edge of where grapes could ripen. But it worked and very quickly, iconic wineries like Kistler, Littorai, William Seylem and Failla fought over precious David’s grapes, each making a Hirsch Vineyard designated wine for many years.
Those wines not only made their reputations as American masters of Pinot Noir but it established the Sonoma Coast as the premier Pinot Noir growing region in America and solidified “Grand Cru” status for the Hirsch Vineyard.
Then, in 2002, after twenty-two years focused on planting and farming, David Hirsch took another risk, making the decision to build a winery and start making his own wines. Fifteen years later, Hirsch stands with Kistler and company as producers of some of the most sought after Pinot Noirs in the world.
His latest release, the 2017 Bohan-Dillon Pinot, is a brilliant wine, a high-toned, elegant Pinot that perfectly represents those precariously perched vineyards that line the famed Bohan-Dillon Road of the Sonoma Coast. The ’17 is aromatically very fine with a silky mouthfeel. It is a perfect choice to drink with holiday meal or make a collector in the know really happy with the gift of a rare bottle of Hirsch Pinot.
