Failla Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard 2007
The dark ruby-colored, earthy, spicy 2007 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard displays a broodingly backward personality as well as very good depth. The tannins and acidity suggest a year or so of bottle age will be beneficial. This beauty can be consumed over the following 7-8 years. Given proprietor Ehren Jordan's experience working in France, it is not surprising that his wines possess French-like acid profiles as well as an unmistakable minerality. Jordan continues to fashion some brilliant white wines, including purchased fruit from John Alban's vineyard in Edna Valley. There are six Pinot Noir cuvees produced at Failla, with the total production now reaching 4,000 cases. Ehren Jordan's undeniable strength is demonstrated by his touch with Syrah.
Bright red fruit, a bit of herbal quality on the nose. Cranberry, some oak but it's not overpowering. Chocolate, eucalyptus and a bit of medicine and cherries. Needs a bit of time. 475 cases produced.
