Crafted with fruit from a roadside vineyard leading to the Hirsch property, the Bohan Dillon is California’s answer to a gutsy Chorey-les-Beaune. Its light cherry color is packed with bright raspberry and spice flavors, and aromas. We suggest enjoying its appealing aromas and fresh flavors with a cellar chill (55°) and your favorite salad – our choice would be duck confit on top of lightly dressed frisée with a light dusting of blue cheese.
Three decades ago David Hirsch had an idea to rehabilitate the once-beautiful Sonoma Coast area north of Jenner, whose redwood trees had been clear-cut by loggers, and the remaining land scoured of vegetation by herds of sheep. As a Burgundy lover, Hirsch planted his land to pinot noir and sought to learn about the relationship between climate and geology as related to the inherent complexities of the pinot noir grape. These days demand for Hirsch's premium fruit outpaces supply and bottlings from Siduri, Williams Selyem, and Littorai to name a few, are among the finest wines from the true Sonoma Coast. After constructing their winery in 2002, the Hirsch family has focused on bottling the best possible wines from their estate grown grapes. Wines are crafted with fruit from close to 72 acres of vineyard, broken up into numerous parcels that hope to best express their various geologies through a dizzying combination of various rootstocks, vine spacings, and clonal selections. In our experience, Hirsch Vineyards handcrafts some of the most distinctive pinot noirs in the United States today.
