The 2013 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is another striking wine from Williams Selyem. Beams of tannin and acidity provide the backdrop for a powerful, structured Pinot endowed with real personality. Readers will have to be patient with the Hirsch, but it is terrific. (AG)
Here the cool and restrained nose only grudgingly offers up its beautifully layered aromas of spice, tea, lilac, red currant and pomegranate. There is excellent verve and delineation to the medium-bodied, caressing and seductive yet entirely serious flavors that are like a coiled spring before concluding in a wonderfully long if mildly austere finish. This is very Zen-like in its understated sense of harmony and refinement yet there is no lack of underlying material that should easily see this amply rewarding up to a decade of cellar time, indeed it will need at least 4 to 5 as this is very tightly wound at present.
The 2013 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard has a dense ruby/plum color and an attractive nose of black cherries and currants as well as earth and forest. It is medium to full-bodied, concentrated, very youthful, fresh and rich. It should age nicely for a decade or more. 91+ (RP)
