Hahn Central Coast Syrah 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep purple-red in the glass, this Syrah elicits intense dark-fruit aromas, along with scents of vanilla and sweet wood. On the palate, flavors of black cherry cola and tobacco give way to notes of leather, pepper and cinnamon. The tannins are silky and round, and the finish is long and memorable. Zesty acid ensures a pleasing pairing with food. This Syrah is a perfect companion for full-flavored meat dishes. Ideal for grilling season, try it with pork ribs slathered in barbecue sauce or tri-tip sandwiches. Roasted duck also makes for a winning combination.

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

Deep violet and fruit driven, the Hahn 2010 Syrah is round and intensely flavorful. Initial aromas of white pepper and raspberries supported by a subtle earthiness reveal a wine of delicious depth. Dark and red fruits dominate the palate, with flavors of blueberries and ripe strawberries that hint at a slight sweetness, under. Delicate tannins create a plush and full bodied mouthfeel and lead to a clean finish. Try this Syrah with spicy Cajun Jambalaya or with herbes de Provence brined chicken. ~The Winery~
