2019 Hahn Appellation Series Pinot Noir
91 pts - Wine Spectator
Grapes for this wine are sourced from Ste. Philippe vineyard – our certified sustainable estate vineyard in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County. Located south of the Santa Lucia Highlands, the Ste. Philippe vineyard sits in an ancient, dry riverbed with well-drained, sandy loam soils. Arroyo Seco river stones, also known as “Greenfield Potatoes,” named for the adjacent town of Greenfield, CA, are unique to this region and integral to the soil as they store and release heat. Coastal influence and cool winds from Monterey Bay contribute to an extended growing season which ensures complexity and intensity of the fruit.
