Hirsch's Pinot Noir Estate San Andreas Fault is absolutely gorgeous in 2016. The flavors are bold, punchy and super-expressive. More importantly, I see more depth and complexity than in the past. Black cherry, plum, lavender and spice all race out of the glass. Pliant, deep and inviting, the 2016 is arrestingly beautiful. The decision to bottle early, with 11 months in oak as opposed to 18-20 as was previously the norm, paid off big time.
