Smith & Hook:
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. Hahn History 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

This 1997 Cab was opened after 14 years, albeit with much trepidation that it may have gone foul. Fortunatly, we found it had aged spectacularly and while opened, gained much more in flavorbetween the first and last sips. Very smooth with flirtatious citrus flavors, this was a fine, uncomplicated cab that merited 8 thumbs up from the 4 of us who were fortunate to open and share this fine bottle.

Winemaker Notes - Made from grapes grown at our own Smith and Hook Ranches and crafted from the vine to the bottle with attention and care. Smith & Hook Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that is sure to please even the most discriminating palate. In true ranch style, this wine pairs well with strong red meat. Try it with prime rib and horseradish, or braised shortribs, with smashed garlic and chive red potatoes.

Very pretty aromatics of cassis, raspberry, and smoke on the nose. Layered flavors of plum and cocoa develop into a rich palette of dark fruits with a hint of vanilla. The tannins are substantial but well developed
