WOW: Hanna Cabernet

WOW: Wine of the Week

Hanna Cabernet 2010
Line 39 Wines
What do February, Valentine's Day and Hanna Cabernet all have in common?  They are all focused on the "heart" of matters!

February is National Women's Heart Health Month and what better way to honor that than to feature a red wine (best for your ticker!) and winery founded by a Cardiac Surgeon?!  Well, for Uncorked, there is no better way than to celebrate, educate and drink wonderful wines!

Product Description

"Hanna Winery was founded in 1985 by Dr. Elias Hanna, a world-renowned cardiac surgeon, who was eager to find a place in the country to continue the farming heritage of his upbringing in Syria. In the 1970s he realized his dream with the purchase of 12 acres in the Russian River Valley. Dr. Hanna’s oldest daughter, Christine, now runs the operations of the winery. Hanna owns 600 acres of land in the Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and the Mayacamas Mountains, 250 of which are planted.
Under Christine Hanna’s guidance, the winery has evolved into an estate philosophy that blends the viticultural diversity of fruit cultivated in its four vineyard estates in three unique appellations. With the help of winemaker Jeff Hinchliffe, they craft award-winning wines, such as its Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc and Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon." - Winery Notes

Hanna Cabernet 2010 Tasting Notes

"Crimson saturated with Navy Blue hues.  Aromas of anise, cassis, blueberries, freshly ground Kenyan coffee and a touch of winter saddle.  All complimented by flavors of black cherry, coffee ice cream, sweet cocoa and garnet dust." - Winery Notes
