Winery Notes:

The East Ridge Estate Pinot Noir is produced from some of the oldest and finest vines at Hirsch. Exceptionally low-yielding, they produce a structured and powerful wine, with fantastic concentration and fruit. The 2018 vintage is true to this expression, with a notably sappy, intensely fruited quality.

This combination of low vigor and low yields results in a wine of dark-fruited concentration tempered by elegance and naturally low alcohol. The East Ridge Pinot Noir is one of our most cellar-worthy wines.

Structured and wildly complex, this wine is just starting to reveal itself, offering a quiet wealth of juicy pomegranate, black tea and rocky tannin. Textured, it is both savory in nature and bursting in acidity, providing a lengthy freshness as it goes. Still, time in the cellar is recommended; enjoy best from 2025–2028.

A really beautiful red with dried strawberry, subtle citrus and cedar with some walnut. Forest floor, too. It’s full-bodied, yet tensioned, very polished and focused. Lovely finish. A little tight now, yet very drinkable. But better after 2022.

Pale ruby in color, the 2018 Pinot Noir East Ridge opens with tones of laurel, bark, earth and tea leaves, with red berry fruits and lemon peel at the core. The light-bodied palate features earth-laced fruits with a soft, juicy frame and long finish.
