Hahn SLH Pinot Noir is A-OK

Hahn SLH (for Santa Lucia Highlands) is a pinot noir of remarkable quality.

This estate wine is produced entirely in the Santa Lucia Highlands where the nearby windswept mountains near the Pacific Ocean experience a long growing season, contributing a depth and complexity in their wines.

Hahn founder Nicky Hahn speared headed the movement to have this area deemed a unique winegrowing district. In 1991, the federal government approved the Highlands as an official American Viticultural Area (AVA). Today, Hahn SLH Pinot Noir and Chardonnay come entirely from their estate in this breathtakingly beautiful region of Monterey County. The fruit is grown in their family-owned vineyards and the wine is barrel-aged in French oak in the winery’s cellar.

For the Hahn SLH Pinot Noir, their winemakers select grapes that yields the most expressive aromas and flavors. After the fruit is carefully sorted, it undergoes a three-day cold soak in open top stainless-steel fermenting tanks. It is then aged for 11 months in a selection of 60-gallon French oak barrels. When the wine is ready to be blended, they choose barrels that they feel best exemplified the aromas, flavors, and structure of the Santa Lucia Highlands.

Hahn SLH Pinot Noir carries aromas of bright red cherry and strawberry with hints of earth, spices, and toasty oak. An explosion of red fruit flavors such as strawberry, cherry, and raspberry lead to a long finish with refined, supple tannins, and a soft mouthfeel.

Pinot Noir is the most universally food-friendly wine choice for pairing.

You can find Hahn SLH, and other prestige pinot noirs, at Wyatt’s Wet Goods. During our huge “Pinot Days” sale, dozens of pinot noirs are on sale, April 25-May 1st!

Saturday Sampling – Greetings Wines of Oregon

This Saturday, April 20, Wyatt’s is offering a free tasting of Greetings wines.

The Greetings Wine Company of Oregon offers a variety of tasty, accessible wines that showcase some of the best that the Pacific Northwest wine cultivating region has to offer.

We will be sampling the following:

Greetings Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Oregon is known for its Pinot Noir, and with this one from Greetings, you can see why. This handcrafted Willamette Pinot Noir is bursting with flavors of blackberry, spice, and dark cherries. Lush and rounded, it is accented by a bright acidity and a long finish. This versatile Pinot Noir teams well with sweet and tangy BBQ dishes, Asian cuisine and gourmet burgers. Try serving it slightly chilled on a warm evening.

Greetings Pinot Gris

This Willamette Valley is not a simple wine. It is vibrant, clean, and well-balanced with notes of soft peach, melon, and citrus on a sleek frame with a touch of minerality in its crisp finish. It is wonderful when paired with spicy pork, mushrooms, or a charcuterie plate.

Greetings Willamette Valley Rosé

Greetings Rosé is flawlessly layered with soft berries, a lush mid-palate texture, and a refreshing, pleasing acidity in its finish. It begins with an enchanting flamingo color, leading to sweet berry aromas and a mouth of plump black cherry and raspberry. A definite pink gem from the Pacific Northwest.

To round out our tasting quartet, we will also be offering:

Buena Vista Sonoma Valley Merlot

This wine opens with enticing aromas of plum skin and dusty chocolate. Rich flavors of dark plum and baked fruits with a subtle touch of dried herbs round out the palate and its big, firm tannins.
