For May’s cookie of the month, we recommend Hirsch Vineyard Estate’s Pinot Noir. This month’s cookie is the Triple Chocolate Midnight Truffle Cookie, part of the Byrd’s Selects Collection. Our decadent Dutch Chocolate Cookie is filled with dark chocolate chips, and a cocoa powder dusting adds the triple to our truffle. The richness of the cookie is the perfect complement to the flavor of this particular Pinot Noir.
The 2009 Hirsh Pinot Noir is the first ever Reserve produced by the Hirsch Vineyard. The company describes the Reserve wine as “A selection of the best barrels from nine of the oldest and finest vineyards blocks at Hirsch”. All things Pinot Noir on the Sonoma Coast began at Hirsch Vineyards. David Hirsch bought the land in 1978, seeking peace and quiet, a refuge to grow shitake mushrooms. It was a friend who suggested a venture into a vineyard. Located on the extreme Sonoma Coast, a remote area on the San Andreas Fault, it seems like an unlikely area to farm grapes. The soil varies from red clay to sand and the temperature is not as mild as many folks claim. A weathered hippie, Hirsch works the complex soil himself, a testament to the quality grape he produces.
You can find the Hirsch Pinot Noir amidst the varied, and ever changing exclusive selection of wines at Byrd Cookie Company. The Triple Chocolate Midnight Truffle is available in 1.5 or 3 ounce boxes. Visit the store to scoop up this delicious flavor by the ounce. Grab a pound bag of our gourmet Triple Chocolate treat, and share with your friends.
