Tasting Notes
Our 2016 Gabrielle Pinot Noir is bursting with aromas of red cherry and blackberry that finish with hints of earthiness and toasty oak. On the palate, rich flavors of bright cherry and earth lead to silky tannins, ending with a long crisp finish.

“Each vintage, Paul and I select a handful of the limited SLH lots – those that best capture the essence of the vintage – and bottle them separately in tribute to my mother Gabrielle, who 40 years ago founded our winery with my father Nicky Hahn.”

– PHILIP HAHN, SECOND GENERATION VINTNER

For the 2016 vintage, three special barrels were chosen, each with its own uniquely edifying contribution to the finished blend. The backbone of this wine was a single barrel selected from Lone Oak vineyard. A blend of clone 667 and a portion of the famed Orchestral block, it contributed silky tannins with hints of cherry surrounded by a citrus based earthiness. The other two barrels from Doctor’s vineyard added a balanced acidity and tannins, leading to a round, elegant mouthfeel. Together, the blend makes for a delicious, voluptuous wine with a delicate finish. Only 60 cases were made.
