    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Hahn SLH Pinot Noir is comprised of grapes grown from four of the Hahn Estates Santa Lucia Highlands Vineyards at elevations up to 1,200 feet. The conditions of the Doctor's and Lone Oak Vineyards, and the Smith and Hook Ranches are ideal for growing Pinot Noir, bathed in the sun above the valley fog, while the ocean breezes keep the temperature moderate and allow for a long, cool growing season.

    Jeweled in a crystal-clear ruby hue, this sultry wine opens to a nose of soft rose petals and earthy aromas. Pepper and nutmeg draw you in and as the wine passes your lips you are surprised by the elegant and rich mouthfeel. At first taste, this juicy wine gives uncut wild berry and strawberry flavors with hints of melted caramel. Viscous flavors of black cherry combined with slight citrus notes give this wine a unique twist. Soft, velvet-coated tannins taper off with a long finish, making this a perfect pairing with virtually any dish.

    Try with vinaigrette-glazed grilled Ahi with spinach and mixed green salad in a raspberry vinaigrette with berries, red onions, avocado and goat cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    When we first tasted this wine, we were surprised and almost mistrusting of its richness and sheer fruity depth, but a second bottle confirmed our initial impressions that Hahn has achieved something special. While showing all of the ripeness and rich, black cherry fruit that we have come to expect of Pinots from this appellation, it is impeccably balanced and shows a wholly unexpected measure of real finesse. It lengthy fruit refuses to quit, and it is without peer when it comes to out-and-out value.

    I bought the first bottle, drank it and thought it was outstanding. It has a deep red hue, a wonderful nose, and a great finish. Nice, mellow (but not weak by any means) taste. I ordered a second bottle a few weeks later, and confirmed that this is my favorite I've ever gotten from wine.com. I'm glad to see that there's more in stock now.
