Below is the April, 2010 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:

2008 Hirsch Vineyards

Chardonnay

Sonoma Coast, California

 

2008 Hirsch Vineyards ChardonnayHirsch Vineyards was established in 1980 on a ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Fort Ross, Sonoma County. From the start, all efforts have been on the growing of fruit that makes wines profoundly characteristic of the site vintage after vintage.

This is the coastal rainforest where rainfall, mostly from October to April, is abundant, yet the summer climate is dry and desert-like. This is also the land of the San Andreas Fault, containing a highly varied mélange of sandstone-based soils and assorted rock placed at random across the rolling hills and ridges on which the vineyards are planted.

This complex, unique site produces fruit and wines of unusual acidity and balance with a vintage specific concentration of fruit.

The 2008 Chardonnay has citrus and lemon curd aromas, followed by earth, minerals, vanilla bean, caramel and a mélange of spices. The palate shows apricot flesh and a rich, creamy mouth feel. The structure is excellent and leads to a long-distance finish.

With less than 600 cases produced, this is a wine to be enjoyed now or laid down for future consumption.
