Failla Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard Sonoma Coast 2019
VM95+: The 2019 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is beautifully layered and also quite mysterious. Constantly changing in the glass, the Hirsch shows all of the pedigree this site is known for. More than anything else, the Hirsch balances intensity with lightness in a way that is totally beguiling. I especially admire the energy here.
Ehren Jordan gained experience in France and at Turley Wine Cellar before starting Failla (named after his wife) on 85-acres on the Sonoma Coast, about 2 miles from the Pacific next to Hirsch Vineyards.
