Winemaker Notes

Vibrant aromas of dark fruit and black currant with hints of sweet spice and toasty oak. Full-bodied and full of flavor with a round viscous mouthfeel backed with concentrated tannic structure carry through to a smooth finish.

Wine Enthusiast

This starts with creamy aromas of black cherry, vanilla and mocha. The ripe palate offers espresso cream, black cherry sorbet and oaky caramel flavors.

COMMENTARY: When a winery can deliver a user-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon in the $20 range, I always consider that a win. The 2017 Smith & Hook Cabernet Sauvignon is perfect for everyday service. TASTING NOTES: This wine is generous on the palate and has a beautifully smooth aftertaste. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit and earth accents should pair it nicely with a grilled ribeye. (Tasted: March 8, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Smith & Hook Winery Winery Video
The Smith Ranch was a horse ranch for generations, while to the south, the Hooks raised cattle. We discovered these ranches in a search for the ideal place to grow Cabernet Sauvignon. The climate along the western slopes of the Santa Lucias was perfect, and the ranch had a beautiful view of the Salinas Valley. So in 1974, we purchased the two ranches and established the Smith & Hook Winery on the old Smith Ranch. We made our first Cabernet Sauvignon in 1979 and quickly developed a reputation for excellence. Hahn Estates represents a continuation of the Smith & Hook tradition of excellence in winemaking. The Hahns own over 1,400 acres of vineyards in Monterey County. Grapes from the different vineyards vary in character and style. With such versatility, we can create supple, accessible wines. In German, "Hahn" means "rooster," and for this reason, a rooster embellishes the Hahn Estates label.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
