Hahn Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast California Santa Lucia Highlands Clifton Paul 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark and lovely, the Hahn Winery 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon fills the nose with aromas of red and dark fruits, plum and espresso. Notes of roasted berries and spice fill the mouth, lifted by melting tannins. A delicate thread of acidity helps carry the length well into the finish. This Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal partner for summer barbecue fare, such as hamburgers. In cooler weather, it’s a perfect standalone wine for sipping over the course of a chilly evening, or try it with a hearty winter dish, such as beef stew.

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
