Hahn Winery

SLH Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2016

Founder Nicky Hahn, grew up speaking German. In his native language, the word ‘Hahn’ means rooster, which is why a depiction of this bird has always graced the label of his wines. Aromas of dark berry fruits with sweet dried spice notes. On the palate cherry and blueberry with oaky notes, cacao and sweet spice. Fine grippy tannins, savory, lingering ending with fruit and mineral tones. Nice value! — 2 years ago

Sine Qua Non

Dark Blossom Syrah 2011

The 2011 ‘Dark Blossom’ by Sin Que Non is a stunning aged wine that is showing marvelously at nearly ten years of age. On the nose this translucent colored Grenache reveals bright red berry and citrus blossom aromas that combine marvelously with the underbrush and earthy undertones. On the palate this shows off its silky mouthfeel with red cherry candy, guava, and shades of nectarine rind with wild mushroom that give this an exotic edge. While this is marvelous now, it has a decade left in it. Drink 2019-2029- 94 — 2 years ago

@Dr. Owen Bargreen : Haven’t had the Grenache, but I have had the ‘11 Dark Blossom Syrah. Wonderful stuff, even in a challenging vintage.

Donatella Cinelli Colombini

Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

[Tasted on April 21, 2020 at Home]

Cherry fruit with licorice, tar, earth, black olive, some leather notes, and a touch of menthol and iron on the finish. A medium to fuller style of Rosso di Montalcino.

Vigneto Monvigliero Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Pronounced nose of Juicy red plums, red cherries, strawberry, raspberry and cranberry, rose hips, dust ... fresh herbs and mint then licorice. Med+ acid, medium body with smooth silky integrated tannins. Medium finish but overall so incredibly weightless yet with so much character... showed even better the second night!
What is so impressive is how refreshing and lifted this is amongst so many darker ready wines from this warm vintage!!!

Thibault Liger-Belair

Vieilles Vignes Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2016

Serious Moulin-à-Vent. Tense, firm structure and lingering intensity. Some mild reduction on the nose leads right into raspberries, violets, spice, leather and crushed stones. Mineral-tinged flavors of creme de menth, dark cherries, cocoa and herbs. This is a powerful and elegant bottle that is superb for aging and offering tons of expression right now. Highly recommended if you can find it. — 2 years ago
