Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Rich and dense, the 2018 Hurst Vineyard Pinot Noir manifests itself into the nose with aromas of white tea, red currants, leather and cinnamon. Core flavors of strawberry, sassafras, and allspice coat the tongue, with focused yet subtle highlights of blueberry and cola to match.
Vineyard Notes
This vineyard was established in 1999 and has been part of our portfolio for many vintages. Hurst Vineyard is located in the Sebastopol Hills area of the Russian River Valley, comprised of talcum-like Goldridge soil, and benefits from the rush of cool marine air from the Pacific Ocean that comes through the northern edge of the Petaluma Gap. The vineyard straddles a ridge comprised of a steep northwest facing slope planted to Pommard 5 clone and a southeast oriented slope of 115 and 777 clones, all of which are skillfully cultivated by Arturo Robeledo Jr. and owner Ben Hurst.
Winemaker Notes
The 2018 Hurst will benefit with some aging, but please enjoy before too much age deteriorates the brilliant fruit, 4 to 7 years.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with your favorite roast accompanied with kobocha squash and parsnips.
