(2003 Vintage) The palate is greeted by bright, rich aromas of dark cherry, cinnamon and hard spices. A symphony of flavors opens with an overture of berry cobbler leading to deeper stone fruit. The broad and lush texture is supported by a backbone of acidic vitality. The typical 'Hirsch' tannins conduct the wine to a fresh, enduring finish. A great village wine that will prove irresistible. This wine can be drunk now or held for at least the next five years. It is a complete wine and fully representative of the site.
