Hahn SLH (Santa Lucia Highlands) Pinot Noir Red Wine 2018 opens with complex aromas of cherry, strawberry, and pomegranate with hints of toasty oak and white pepper. On the palate, it shows expressive flavors of ripe berries with slight sage notes, which add complexity and depth. Balanced acidity and gentle tannins lead to a long, sophisticated finish.
After the fruit has been carefully picked and sorted, this wine has fermented in open-top stainless steel tanks. It then ages for up to 11 months in a selection of small, 60-gallon French oak barrels. When this Pinot Noir is ready to be blended, the winemaker selects only those barrels that exemplify the aromas and flavors of the Santa Lucia Highlands. This SLH Pinot Noir pairs well with beef, veal, or poultry. Enjoy!
