This has such fresh and lively cherries with sappy appeal, in a very fresh and vibrant mode. Roses and fresh forest berries abound here. The palate has a beautifully defined and elegant feel. The freshness is compelling and a bright, 12.6% abv clinches the deal here. Bravo! Drink now.
This is the only cuvée from Hirsch that is not made entirely with estate fruit. This vintage, there is only about a 5% splash of non-estate fruit. "We will include some declassified vineyards, younger vines, etc. in this," says Jasmine Hirsch. "The idea is for a wine that's lighter and can be drunk young." Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 The Bohan Dilon Pinot Noir is softly scented of underbrush, moss, crushed stone, woodsmoke and black tea leaves with nuances of amaro and a core of delicate red berries. The palate is light to medium-bodied with delicate intensity, finely woven soft, grainy tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long and nuanced. Great value! 683 cases produced. Jasmine Hirsch is one of the most honest, thoughtful and environmentally astute winemakers I can think of. 2019 marks her first full vintage as winemaker at Hirsch. We walked through parcels planted by her father in 1980 and spoke of the benefits of biodynamic farming, which the estate converted to in 2014. (EB)
The 2017 Pinot Noir Bohan Dillon is fascinating to taste next to the 2016. The 2017 possesses good up-front fruit and brightness, but the tannins are also larger and more coarse. The wine's feel might be attributable to the specifics of the 2017 growing season and/or to the slightly higher percentage of whole clusters (25%) in this vintage. It will be interesting to see if the 2017 softens with a bit more time in bottle.(AG)
