Tasting Notes
Our 2016 Orchestral Pinot Noir reflects the cool climate and well-drained soils of Lone Oak Vineyard as well as the unique complexity that arises from multiple clones. On the nose aromas of spice and earthiness, vibrant red fruit, hits of cherry and cracked black pepper attest to the multi-layered nature of the wine. The structured palate provides a full, round mouthfeel, bright balanced acidity, red cherry flavor and soft tannins on the finish.

Grown in Lone Oak Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, Orchestral is one of Hahn Family Wines’ most complex Pinot Noirs. It started as an experiment by Nicky Hahn and Winemaker Paul Clifton, who wanted to create a true Burgundian expression of Pinot Noir. In 2013 a five-acre block of Lone Oak Vineyard was inter-planted to 19 different Pinot Noir vines in the Burgundian style, where it’s believed the mingling of clonal material throughout the growing, fermentation and aging stages leads to more complex wines. Field blends like this are rare in California. Only 150 cases made.
