Winemaker's Notes:

This deep ruby Syrah combines strength and grace, opening with aromas of raspberry, black cherry and pepper. Lush and seductive, its concentrated fruit flavors are complemented by nuances of dark chocolate, espresso, spice, butter and oak. Sturdy yet refined tannins and a velvety mouthfeel lead to an elegant finish.

This wine pairs perfectly with charred meats and hearty stews. Try it with barbecued spareribs, lamb skewers, or a bacon and blue cheese burger served with sweet potato fries.

About Hahn Estates:

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.

The wind and fog interact with solar radiation to slow grapes' ripening, producing up to two months longer growing season than in warmer grape growing regions. These conditions create fruit with more varietal intensity, flavor, depth and structure, and thus, exceptional wines. In German, "Hahn" means "Rooster" and for this reason a rooster embellishes the Hahn Estates label, honoring the Hahn Family’s European Heritage. 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.
