Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby in color, Hahn Estates Santa Lucia Highlands 2010 Pinot Noir is rich, layered and complex. Bright red berry fruit dominate the nose and palate, along with the lush dark fruit flavors characteristic of Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. Notes of spice, dried herbs, violets, minerals and toasty oak are balanced by cool-climate acidity and silky tannins.

This versatile wine pairs well with virtually any dish. Try with seared Muscovy duck breast over wild rice risotto with dried cherry sauce or bacon wrapped monkfish over braised leeks.

About Hahn Winery:

Our founder, Nicky Hahn, grew up speaking German. In his native language, the word ‘Hahn’ means rooster, which is why a depiction of this bird has always graced the label of our Hahn wines. From the beginning, Nicky strove to produce exceptional varietal wines from Monterey County where Hahn’s vineyards and winery are located.

This assemblage of classically-styled varietal wines—along with our GSM Rhone-inspired blend—are now under the care of second-generation vintner Philip Hahn, who proudly carries on his father’s legacy. Vintage after vintage, we style our Hahn wines to be fruit-forward, balanced and supple. Our vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco AVAs are a significant source of fruit for these wines.
