The 2018 vintage is a blend of 70% Hirsch Vineyards Pinot Noir and 30% Hellenthal Vineyard Pinot Noir, the only vineyard contiguous to Hirsch. Rich, high-toned red fruit is balanced by bright acidity and modest tannins. Aromatic and expressive, this is a precocious and delicious wine. Arguably the best vintage of Bohan-Dillon since the wildly popular 2011! In the Bohan-Dillon you will find the ultimate summer red, the wine for Tuesday night pizza or for entertaining anytime - made with integrity and precision.

Made in slightly higher amounts than many of the producer's other estate wines, this is an outstanding value for the quality,-a wildly delicious expression of the grape, region and vintage that is in cohesive harmony. Savory, rocky and textured, it blends 30% of its grapes from neighboring Hellenthal Vineyard, the combination exploding in red tangy fruit.

Moving to the Pinot Noirs and the largest production cuvée (it's also the only 2018 presented), the 2018 Pinot Noir Bohan Dillon comes 70% from the Hirsch Vineyard and 30% from the Hellenthal Vineyard, aged 10 months in oak. This Côte de Nuits-like charmer has beautiful wild strawberry and mulberry fruits intermixed with plenty of spice as well as foresty, floral notes. Medium-bodied, elegant, and vibrant on the palate, with a terrific sense of tension, it's mid-weight yet still intense. This beautiful wine will evolve for over a decade. It's a smoking value.

The Bohan-Dilon is the only wine in the Hirsch lineup that includes fruit from outside the estate-about 25% of the 2018 The Bohan-Dilon Pinot Noir comes from the Hellenthal vineyard, contiguous to the Hirsch property. It's one of the more beautiful expressions of this cuvée I've tasted in some time. The nose is gorgeous, with pure aromas of crushed red cherries, garrigue, lilac, tea leaves and forest floor with more nuances coming through with time. The palate is light to medium-bodied and incredibly elegant, packed to the gills with flavor but weightless with its lively acidity and very fine graininess, finishing long and nuanced. What an incredible vintage for this cuvée!

The 2018 Pinot Noir Bohan Dillon is bright, perfumed and wonderfully inviting, making it a great choice for readers who want to explore the Hirsch style without delving into the higher-end wines. Crushed red berries, flowers, mint and sweet spice all develop effortlessly. Over the last few months, the 2018 has gained a measure of intensity it did not show a few months ago. The 2018 is such a pretty wine.
