2021 Hirsch Bohan-Dillon Pinot Noir14671
WINEMAKER: Jasmine Hirsch
REGION: California, USA
VARIETY: Pinot Noir
David Hirsch was inspired to create the Bohan-Dillon Pinot Noir as an homage to the great village wines of France: a wine full of place and personality, made with the same attention and integrity as the top wines, yet at an incredible price.
The 2021 Bohan-Dillon is made from three West Sonoma Coast vineyards: Hirsch and Hellenthal, situated contiguous to each other, and the Heintz Ranch. This is the first vintage of Bohan-Dillon to include fruit from Heintz, which we selected due to its storied reputation and our faith in Charlie Heintz, a third generation West County farmer. The Heintz Ranch is located about 20 miles south of Hirsch, just east of the town of Occidental. All three of these vineyards produce wines of character and personality, and together they result in a wine of great integrity and complexity.
The 2021 Bohan-Dillon is remarkably expressive upon opening. Notes of crushed strawberries, Santa Rosa plum, thyme, violets and sage jump out of the glass. The palate is juicy and mouth-filling, with tremendous energy and freshness.
