Hahn Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Limpid ruby-red. Vibrant, spice-accented scents of red berries, cherry and spicecake are complemented by a building floral overtone. Juicy and expansive in the mouth, offering energetic raspberry, bitter and floral pastille flavors that deepen and turn sweeter on the back half. In an energetic style, with smooth tannins framing an impressively long, spicy finish that leaves a candied rose note behind.
Fresh carnation and raspberry are spiced up with peppercorns, smashed asphalt and turned earth on the complex nose of this bottling. The palate is quite cohesive in flavors of roasted cherry and ripe strawberry, with fennel pollen, crushed slate and baking spice adding depth.
