"The 2013 Pinot Noir Estate San Andreas Fault is another pretty, expressive wine that reflects the mid-weight style of the year. There is a lovely sense of purity on the fruit, yet the 2013 remains tightly wound and in need of time to fully open up. Hints of crushed flowers, dried cherries, mint and spices are nicely layered throughout." 91ag
The San Andreas Fault is Hirsch Vineyards signature pinot noir and is crafted to represent the entirety of this multifaceted vineyard. The 2013 San Andreas Fault has fruit from 24 of Hirsch's 61 distinct farming blocks, more than any other wine made from the Hirsch Vineyard. It is the flagship wine from Hirsch, and the wine that represents the summation of this complex vineyard.
