Hahn SLH Estate's 2010 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir is brimming with bright fruit, dark undertones and those farmyard aromas common to most Pinots. With notes of pepper, strawberry and dried mint on the palette, this wine is as food-friendly as it is drinkable. It retails for $35 and can be aged up to 7 years.
The heartiness of this pinot makes me want to bust out the BBQ! Grilled garlic asparagus with meyer lemon peels is the first thing that comes to mind.
Hahn Estate is SIP certified using a variety of sustainable practices to bring you tasty, tasty wine.
