Owned by John and Linda Hirschy, the Pinot from the Hirschy vineyard has developed a cult following among our friends and customers. The vineyard was planted in 2005 and is on Willakenzie soil and planted north/south, which is unusual.
We have Block A with a mix of Dijon 777 clone and Dijon 667 clone. We pick the two together and make it as one wine. These two clones are famous for ripening a little earlier and the combination gives the wine a juicy mid-palate. We often see bright, yet rich, red cherry flavors here, and a little “kick” on the finish, which we attribute to slightly higher alcohol. That higher alcohol is barely perceptible however, as it’s balanced by the characteristic richness of the wine. This is one of the warmest sites we deal with and it competes for being the first to be harvest in any vintage. Hirschy fans love this wine because it is deep and complex.
