Reviews and Ratings

Brent Gushowaty rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

In this glass, pale with a ruby rim. The nose here is soft and pillowy, shows good acidity that nicely underpins a mélange of lighter red fruits. The palate is fairly simple and light but also persistent, a balanced miniature with echoing pomegranate, strawberry and cherry notes. B- ~ 90

From the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County, which sits on a gravelly alluvial plain beneath the Santa Lucia mountain range. The wine spent 8 months in 40% new french oak.

Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pleasantly surprised by this Pinot given the low price point. Medium weight with light tannins. Ripe raspberry, red cherry, and oak spice notes. Generous depth of flavour with a touch of sweetness. A recommended weekday wine with great versatility- pairing would be easy, but try with blackened salmon fillets. Tasted: April 2019 - Cali Wine Fair
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of Montmorency cherry, field berries, cedar notes and sweet spice. Flavours of tart blackberry with a touch of chocolate. It is medium bodied and easy to drink with smooth tannins. Pair with grilled pork or with grilled Portobello mushroom.

Tasted at the California Wine Fair in Ottawa April 2019.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a great value Pinot Noir. In fact, after the California Wine Fair I know one person who went out and bought what was left in the local LCBO to have on hand for this summer! At this price point Pinot's are usually not as complex as what the Hahn Family has managed to do with this vintage. Aromas of fresh cherry, cedar and rhubarb. Cherry flavours again on the palate with a medium body, silky tannins and soft acidity. If you can still find some this is a great find for casual weekday meals. Tasted April 26/19 California Wine Fair
