2020 Hahn Appellation Series Pinot Noir
90 pts, Editors' Choice - Wine Enthusiast, May 2022
“This widely available bottling packs all the familiar hallmarks of the variety into a likable package. Aromas of muddled plum, dark cherry, cola and toasty oak slide into a ripe, fruit-driven palate of black cherry and nutmeg, with a grip that lasts into the finish.” - M.K.
Picked in early morning, the Pinot Noir grapes were destemmed into stainless steel tanks and fermented for about 3 weeks. During that time, the wine was gently punched down several times daily to maximize color, aromatics and flavor extraction. After the juice was pressed off the skins, it was settled and racked into French oak barrels to age for 11 months.
