Hahn 2016 Pinot Noir Estate, Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey

Item Number: 17 20 276 16

Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses

The Hahn's founded their first vineyards in the late '70s in Monterey County and started producing wines that really made everyone take notice. In 1988 Nicky Hahn advocated for the new wine appellation that ultimately led to the creation of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. Since then it's been clear that the vineyards in this area were special. The combination of high altitude and the cooling influence of the ocean breezes make it a perfect region for growing Pinot Noir with lots of character and intensity. The sourcing for this 2016 is 55% Smith Vineyard, 30% Doctor's Vineyard, 10% Hook Vineyard and 5% Lone Oak Vineyard. After the fruit has been carefully picked and sorted, it is fermented in open top stainless steel tanks. We then age this Pinot Noir for up to 11 months in a selection of small, 60-gallon French oak barrels 33% new. When the wine is ready to be blended, the winemaker selects only those barrels that exemplify the finest aromas and flavors of the Santa Lucia Highlands.
