Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

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!

This I was equally excited to stumble across. It’s surprisingly hard to find. I got lucky with the 2014 but never found the 2015. Unlike The Calling, this was amazing. Generous cherry fruit and earl grey tea flavors, with a long, lovely herbaceous finish. One of the best, if not the best, sub-$20 Pinots I’ve had. Stock up.

I haven’t enjoyed a $20 Pinot this much since Calera coastal (back when it was $20)
I love the style. Looks like I need explore SLH pinots a bit more...

Very nice and smooth. Cherries, apricots , chocolate. Especially rich chocolate on the finish.

We had this on 3/17-18/19. Silky texture. Tastes of black cherry, plum, spice and cardomom. Medium bodied wine but fuller than one from Sonoma or Oregon. Better than expected.

A fruity Pinot Noir paired with a Chicken Pot Pie....the fruit balanced the richness of the gravy
