Hahn Estates 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.

Hahn Estate:
The spectacular beauty of California 's central coast is probably the best-known region in all of California for its unique lifestyle.

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

Dieser reine Syrah besticht mit seiner klaren Frucht, die nach frischen Brombeeren, Lakritze und Cassis duftet. Im Gaumen faszinieren die absolut seidenen Gerbstoffe und der saftige Körper dieses Weins. Ganz im Gegensatz zu seinen europäischen Verwandten sucht man die krautig-pfeffrigen und nach Efeu duftenden Komponenten bei diesem Tropfen vergebens.

Rubinrote Farbe mit violetten Reflexen, intensives Fruchtbukett das an Brombeeren erinnert, Gewürz und Pfeffernoten. Am Gaumen warm, voll an reifer Frucht, kräftig und langanhaltend.

Intensive Aromen von frisch gemahlenem Pfeffer und Himbeerkonfitüre in der Nase. Der Auftritt mit dunkelroten Früchten wie Pflaumen und Brombeeren ist fast von Anbeginn mundfüllend. Die Mischung von schwarzen Kirschen und Gewürzen im Gaumen geht nahtlos über zum Finale. Dichte, aber gut integrierte Tannine unterstützen diese wundervolle Mischung und verlängern die Empfindung.

Wine Tasting NotesAromas of overripe raspberry and cinnamon with a whiff of cedar. Very, very Syrah with flavors of red fruit, blackberry and plum spread out on a bed of chewy tannins. The wine finishes with mocha and oak and stays true to form throughout. Wonderfully rich with an almost jammy quality, this wine will pair with a range of hearty dishes. Try pairing this wine with a rack of lamb and caramelized shallots, broiled filet mignon on garlic mashed potatoes, or something off the wall like jambalaya with a spicy Creole sauce.

Intense aromatics of freshly cracked pepper and raspberry jam on the nose. The entry is full bore with dark red fruits ala plum and blackberry, filling the mouth almost immediately. No holes in the midpalate at all with a collection of black cherry and spice notes that carry the lush forepalate in a seamless transition well into the finish. Bold but integrated tannins support this wonderful mélange until the cool climate acidity takes over and lengthens the sensation until you’ve reached for a second sip.
