Hahn Cabernet 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The winner of multiple awards at wine competitions throughout the country, and worthy of each one! From the makers of Smith & Hook, the Hahn Cabernet is deep and brooding, with black fruits, mocha and cedar on the nose. On the palate, brighter red berry notes, chocolate and anise all vie for dominance. Richly textured, with excellent structure, perfect for pairing - be sure to try it with winemaker-recommended dishes such as prime rib with horseradish or barbecued short ribs in a tangy marinade.

The spectacular beauty of California 's central coast is probably the best-known region in all of California for its unique lifestyle. Monterey County's dramatic ocean scenery, historic communities, artistic culture, verdant pine forests, and bountiful agriculture have beckoned adventure-seekers, seafarers, artists, writers and vacationers for over 100 years. And the 99 miles of breathtaking Pacific coastline is something no other California county can boast. With an inspiration to raise Monterey wines to the highest level, the wines of Hahn Estates are created with a philosophy that all great wines are special – akin to the region they were grown in. The Hahn wines celebrate everything that is Monterey – unique in thought, style and setting. Wines of Monterey Distinction. The Smith Ranch had been a horse ranch, while the neighboring Hook Ranch had raised cattle for generations. With their prime location in the Santa Lucia Highlands overlooking the Salinas Valley, these ranches-turned-vineyards presented ideal growing conditions for growing premium varietal fruit. Smith & Hook Winery released its first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon to high acclaim in 1980. In 1991, Nicky created the Hahn Estates brand to showcase supple, accessible, and attractively priced wines from the family's Monterey County vineyards. In German, “Hahn” means “Rooster” and for this reason a rooster embellishes the Hahn Estates label, honoring the Hahn family's European heritage. And while Smith & Hook remains the first wine produced by the Hahn family, Hahn Estates is the primary wine brand produced by the Hahns and the winery is now proudly known as “Hahn Estates / Smith & Hook Winery.” Read less

Complex and balanced, with cedar dill-laced oak joining ripe currant, plum and spice, turning rustic and chewy, but honing in on the core flavors. Drink now through 2014.

Rich and silky, with a soft, round mouthfeel and lots of lush blackberry fruits. On the nose, seductive aromas of cassis, cedar and blueberry beckon. A really well-made, quite tasty wine in this price range. Hahn consistently produces great wine values, and this Cabernet is worth seeking out.

The 2001 vintage yielded intensely flavorful reds in California, and this Monterey vineyard seems to have soaked up its full share of toasty sunshine. Hahn (the German word for rooster) continues its tradition of cedary, cherry-tinged cabernets with this outdoorsy 2001 version.
