User Reviews for Failla Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Hirsch Vineyard

Winemaker's Notes:

We picked this fruit in two passes about 10 days apart in mid-September, first the Pommard clone then the Mt. Eden. As always, we destemmed the fruit into open-topped fermenters where it was handled gently with daily manual punch-downs. We then aged the wine in all French oak barrels, one-third of which were new. Aromatic undertones of vanilla and baking spices add complexity to the "classic coastal Pinot nose" of plum and black cherry. Marked by firm tannins and well-balanced oak, this wine reveals itself with aeration, so decant to drink now or cellar for 5-7 years.
