Hahn Winery Pinot Noir California 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The color is slightly cloudy ruby red with black highlights. The nose is plum, black cherry, licorice, spice drops, and faint herbs. There is a smooth creamy mouth feel, that gets slightly rough around the edges. It tastes of cherries in cream, pomegranat

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

Fairly oaky on the nose but at the same time this offers up attractive tart red berried fruit though the longer it sits in the glass the more it smells of wood spice and yet there are some underlying floral, grapefruit and cherry aromas that are putting up a fight. Fairly rich and nicely polished , you can sense both the acid and tannin here but the float under the veneer of oak induced sweetness and vaguely jammy cherry fruit that shows a nice forest floor note on the back palate. Everything comes together nicely on the finish with both acid and tannin supporting a fine blend of wood spice and raspberryish fruit. While this may be a bit chunky and obvious it is an amazing value at this price. 87pts
