2019 Hahn SLH GSM
92 pts - Vinous, May 2022
"Glistening ruby-red. Spice-accented red and blue fruit, vanilla and floral aromas show fine clarity and minerally lift. Offers sappy, Chambord, boysenberry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that smoothly blend depth and energy while showing no rough edges. The floral and spice notes drive a long, juicy finish that features smooth tannins and a strong echo of sappy red fruit. 40% new French oak." - J.R.
Our vineyards planted in the Santa Lucia Highlands experience a long and dry growing season that results in wines with remarkable depth, complexity and ripe fruit flavors. Our SLH vineyards – Lone Oak, Smith, Doctor’s, and Hook – are planted on a narrow bench at elevations ranging from 200 to 1,200 feet above sea level. Here, plentiful sun and well-drained soils aid concentration and flavor development.
