Always reserved for placement on only the finest restaurant wine lists, we feel particularly fortunate and honored to receive small quantities of these special Hirsch Vineyards’ wines, including the “East Ridge” and “West Ridge” Pinot Noir, and the signature “Andreas Fault”.
The “San Andreas Fault” is Hirsch Vineyards’ signature Pinot Noir and is crafted to represent the entirety of this multifaceted vineyard. Hirsch Vineyards is situated just a half mile from the actual fault line. The San Andreas Fault has fruit from 24 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.
“Powerful and refined, with a concentrated blend of spiced cherry, red currant and dried berry flavors that are backed by crisp acidity and firm tannins. The finish is propelled by intense minerality and savory spice notes. Best from 2022 through 2027.” – 94 points, Wine Spectator —K.M. 5/5/21
