David Hirsch was inspired to create the Bohan-Dillon Pinot Noir as an homage to the great village wines of France: a wine full of place and personality, made with the same care and attention as the top wines, yet at a good price.

It would be impossible to overstate the impact and legacy of David Hirsch on the viticultural scene in the United States. When he bought his remote ranch, perched high on the very cool Sonoma Coast, in 1978 there wasn't a vineyard for miles around, but his decision to plant Pinot Noir in 1980 established him as one of California's new viticultural pioneers. In 2002, with a full understanding of his vineyard gained over nearly 20 vintages, Hirsch decided to build a winery and bottle the best parcels of fruit under his own label.

There is huge complexity of soil and topography across the vineyard, with 67 individual blocks being picked and vinified separately each year. Jasmine Hirsch, David's daughter and one of the most insightful and considerate winemakers you will ever meet, now runs the estate. The process of farming to enable an early harvest has been honed over many vintages, ensuring terroir is never masked by ripeness and delivering wines of refinement, grace, and intensity of flavour without weight. Now fully biodynamic, winemaking has been decidedly hands-off from the outset, and the resulting Pinot Noir - more earthy, more savoury, and with a remarkable ability to age and develop in the cellar - are some of the most highly praised and sought after in the United States.

"The Hirsch family's Sonoma Coast estate is undoubtedly one of the great vineyard sites in the United States." Antonio Galloni

Hirsch Vineyards has again been named one of the Top 100 Wineries of the Year by Wine & Spirits Magazine.

David Hirsch was inspired to create the Bohan-Dillon Pinot Noir as a homage to the great village wines of France: a wine full of place and personality made with the same attention and integrity as the top wines, yet at an incredible price. In 2020, about 73% of the grapes in the Bohan-Dillon Pinot Noir came from Hirsch; the balance from the Hellenthal Vineyard, the only vineyard contiguous to us. These are serious Pinot Noir vineyards, with 93% of the vines between 20 and 30 years of age.

The balance on the nose borders on perfection… The palate shows everything on the nose along with fantastic balance and a soft all-encompassing mouthfeel. It’s amazing. Acid, fruit, tannin. All of it is in harmony.

Tasting Profile

The 2021 Bohan-Dillon is remarkably expressive upon opening. Notes of crushed strawberries, Santa Rosa plum, thyme, violets and sage jump out of the glass. The palate is juicy and mouth-filling, with tremendous energy and freshness.
