Hahn Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Tart and candied berry aromas meet with tangy pomegranate and hibiscus on the nose. The palate combines more cranberry and pomegranate flavors with dried herbs, all framed by energetic acidity and firm tannins.
Translucent red. Spice-tinged aromas of fresh red berries and cherries are complemented by incense, vanilla and cola accents. Clean and racy on entry, then deeper in the middle, offering cherry cola, raspberry and spicecake flavors and a touch of florality on the back half. Subtle tannins come up slowly on a smooth, fruit-driven finish that lingers with very good persistence.
Fresh-crushed savory herbal notes flank the ripe dark fruit and spice flavors, which turn a touch cloying on the finish. Drink now. 35,000 cases made.
