Deep ruby in color, Hahn SLH Estate 2008 Pinot Noir exhibits the richness and depth one has come to associate with Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. Scents of cherry and dark fruit mingle on the nose with wisps of black pepper. Flavors of ripe red and dark fruits, sweet oak and a tinge of citrus are balanced by cool-climate acidity and velvety tannins. The mouthfeel is rich yet elegant, tapering off to a lengthy, luxurious finish.
This versatile wine pairs well with virtually any dish. Try it with stuffed pork chops, chicken cacciatore or vinaigrette-glazed grilled ahi.
