Under The Wire Pinot Noir Hirsch 2016 w1 s1*

Just barely able to be called a sparkling rosé, or maybe not even? The 2017 rendition from 1880s-planted vines in the heart of Sonoma Valley has just a hint of copper color from the shorter soak of only 90 minutes in 2017 (we typically do 2-3 hours). The most fruit-forward of all the wines in this release, the palate is laden with raspberry and bergamot along with an intoxicating strawberry flavor that takes me back to my NYC days, and one particular seller of tiny wild strawberries at the farmer’s market. They were the essence of strawberry, but with a depth and a brightness to them. I have never experienced a bubbly liquid version of that until now. We hope Arpad Haraszthy would be proud of us continuing the tradition of old vine zin bubbles that taste simply delicious. Plus, you will totally mess with your friends' minds when you blind them on this, because, yes, we can have dinners with friends again. Pop that sparkling zin and celebrate!
