Hahn Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Red ruby in the glass, this wine opens with aromas of red cherry, blackberry and hints of earthiness and toasty oak. The palate is rich, with refined tannins, balanced acidity, and flavors of red fruit, cherry, raspberry and notes of vanilla and plum on a long complex finish.
This is a strong showing for a large production Pinot Noir. Mesquite-smoked cherry and light cola aromas on the nose cruise into a spicy palate of root beer and cinnamon that surrounds a cherry compote core.
Concentrated dark fruit and berry flavors are backed by medium-grained tannins and fresh acidity, with loamy and minerally accents on the ripe finish. Drink now through 2024. 28,000 cases made.
