2014 HIRSCH VINEYARDS EAST RIDGE ESTATE PINOT NOIR The East Ridge Estate Pinot Noir is from the warmest part of the vineyard, a topographically distinct micro-site within the Hirsch Vineyard. The East Ridge Pinot Noir is a powerful expression of the Hirsch Vineyard, with fantastic structure, concentration and fruit. 12.5% alc. Many exceptional wines were made from the East Ridge by our fruit customers over the years.Our first estate bottling from the East Ridge was from the 2009 vintage. Our new winemaker at the time, Ross Cobb, had first tasted Hirsch out of barrel at Williams Selyem, when he was employed there as their enologist. The blocks he tasted at Williams Selyem were from the East Ridge. When Ross joined Hirsch, he encouraged us to bottle these blocks on their own, and thus the East Ridge Pinot Noir was born. We have produced the East Ridge Pinot Noir every year since.
