Hahn Estates Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2015

Member Review by rckr1951:

Wine of the night and at $20 this oozes QPR from start to finish. Why a 92 you ask - stunning depth of fruit, dark cherry, raspberry, full & lush, spice, earthiness, mocha, moderate tannins and well balanced acidity give this a mouth watering, long lasting aftertaste. Excellent wine! Drink or hold - Paul 92 points

Hahn Estate:
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.

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

Aromas of black cherry and dark currant come out of the glass with an initial swirl, revealing this wine s intense black fruit flavors. A sip reveals a full bodied Pinot Noir imbued with flavors of ripe red plums and flecks of allspice.

Bright red fruit dominates the nose and palate, along with the black fruit flavors characteristic of Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. Deep ruby in color, Hahn SLH Estate 2010 Pinot Noir is vibrant and simply stunning, perhaps our finest to date. Notes of cherry cola, dried herbs and minerals are balanced by cool-climate acidity and velvety tannins.
