Full red-ruby. Sappy raspberry, cherry cola, green tea, violet and pepper on the nose. Bright, tightly wound and pure, with pungently fresh berry flavors enlivened by brisk, harmonious acids. Very long and precise on the uncompromisingly dry finish, which features solid tannic spine. The crop level here was less than a ton an acre in '99, according to Cabral. Very promising Pinot built for long life. 91+ (ST)
Distinctive and assertive. Rich, intense and concentrated, with layers of black cherry, wild berry, plum and mineral that are backed by mouthcoating tannins.
The 1999 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard (1,100 cases) exhibits that vineyard's tell-tale meaty, black cherry, and mineral-like characteristics as well as a sinewy, muscular, concentrated, firm palate, high acidity, and plenty of broodingly backward black fruits. It will need time in the bottle. (RP)
