Winemaker Notes

As with the 2013 Hirsch, this wine is a barrel selection of those which, in Byron Kosuge's opinion, were most “Hirsch-like” and expressive. They tend not to be the new barrels, although there is a very small portion of new oak in the 2014. Mostly they are the barrels that show the greatest clarity and purity of flavor.

These wines always need a little air to open up, and they often show their best six months to a year after release. Right now, the 2014 Hirsch is brighter than the 2013, with a hint of "grapiness" that is very typical of the 2014 vintage. Like all B. Kosuge's other 2014 Pinots, there’s an appealing tension between ripeness and energy.

James Suckling
Aromas of dried berries and cherries follow through to a medium body, fine tannins and a savory finish. Delicate and delicious.

Byron Kosuge, winemaker at Saintsbury for 20 years, makes this blockbuster label of his own. Selecting vineyards for their unique terroir, Byron’s cornerstone is "The Shop," an expressive Pinot dedicated to the people who tend the grapes. It is joined by small productions sourced from top vineyards, including Hirsch, Hudson, Soberanes and his monopole vineyard in Carneros. All exquisite, these wines capture Byron's sense of dedication, modesty and elegance.

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.
