Winemaker's Notes:

Aromatics of the Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010 are quintessential Hirsch; expressive with raspberry, green tea, sandalwood and balsam. The palate shows the noble side of Pinot Noir; fine but resolved tannins that give way to great freshness as a result of the well preserved acidity.

About Failla:

While the history of Failla (pronounced FAY-la) is short it is not without its complexities. Founded as Failla Jordan in 1998, it took its name from the husband-and-wife team of winemaker Ehren Jordan and fellow debtor Anne-Marie Failla. That year we planted our Estate vineyard on the Sonoma Coast and began buying fruit for our first releases, the very Rhône-style '98 Alban Vineyard Viognier and '98 Que Syrah Syrah.
