"Medium ruby colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir San Andreas Fault is youthfully shy on the nose, giving up strawberry and raspberry preserves, bergamot, amaro, rose petals, charcuterie and pipe tobacco. The light to medium-bodied palate offers nuanced red fruits with firm, grainy tannins, finishing on a bitters note. 3,488 cases produced."

"Hirsch's Pinot Noir Estate San Andreas Fault is absolutely gorgeous in 2016. The flavors are bold, punchy and super-expressive. More importantly, I see more depth and complexity than in the past. Black cherry, plum, lavender and spice all race out of the glass. Pliant, deep and inviting, the 2016 is arrestingly beautiful. The decision to bottle early, with 11 months in oak as opposed to 18-20 as was previously the norm, paid off big time. - Antonio Galloni"

Wine Enthusiast 92
"Strawberry puree, raspberry, mint and sage adorn up-front acidity in this focused, fresh and delicately framed wine named for the infamous earthquake fault. Crisp and light as cucumber, it sizzles in earthy energy."

Wine Spectator 91
"Concentrated forest floor notes accent the dried cherry, currant and raspberry flavors. The fresh, minerally finish is firm and lightly spiced. Drink now through 2023. 3,488 cases made. — KM"

The Wine
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.

The Estate
Hirsch is the pioneer vineyard on the ‘True’ Sonoma Coast. Planted from 1980 by David Hirsch, two miles from the ocean at Ft. Ross (AVA) in Sonoma County, the vineyard first became known from wines of Williams Selyem, Kistler, Littorai, and others. The on-site winery was started in 2002, and winemaker Anthony Filiberti has joined the team to craft some of the most compelling wines of this ‘grand cru’ quality vineyard. Every effort has been made to integrate the wine making with the farming to produce wines that have site typicity: rich pinot fruit married to a profound acidic complexity finished with deep, evolved natural tannins.
