Tasting Notes
Our 2017 Orchestral Pinot Noir reflects the cool climate and well-drained soils of Lone Oak Vineyard as well as the unique complexity brought on by multiple clones. Subtle hints of loamy earth add further complexity to the nose of vibrant red fruit, bright cherry and pomegranate, followed by notes of freshly cracked pepper and nutmeg. In the mouth, layers of fruit continue with flavors of red cherry, blood orange and rhubarb pie that mingle with earthy notes of mushrooms and spice. The structured palate provides a round and soft mouthfeel with bright acidity, silky tannins and a long gentle finish.

"Limpid ruby-red. Displays ripe red fruit, blood orange, floral and baking spice aromas that pick up suggestions of smoky minerals and vanilla with air. Appealingly sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering kirsch, raspberry and spicecake flavors that stretch out and deepen with air. Smooth tannins add shape to a very long, smoky finish that strongly echoes the cherry and spice notes. 33% new French oak." - J.R.

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 180 cases made.
