WOW: What is "SLH?"

WOW: Wine of the Week

What is "SLH?"

Chandon Nautical Summer

What you may ask does "SLH" stand for?  Try this Pinot Noir from Hahn and you'll be first to inform all fellow wine lovers of YOUR new found love for the "Santa Lucia Highlands!"  AND, at a special price of just $19.48 per bottle this week (reduced from $25.99), this is bottle worthy of stocking up for future consumption (remember, Pinot Noir is the perfect compliment to most fare!).

Though it may be too soon to share - Hahn SLH Pinot Noir has earned its place at the Thanksgiving Table for 2014!

Product Description

"The 2012 vintage was among the best for Pinot Noir in recent years. Consistent, moderate temperatures before and during harvest ensured that the grapes were able to ripen gradually on the vine. This long, extended growing season produced fruit with incredible intensity.  To make our 2012 SLH Pinot Noir, our winemakers selected fruit from clones that yielded the most expressive aromas and flavors. After the fruit was hand-picked and sorted, it underwent a three-day cold soak in open top fermenters. We then aged this Pinot Noir for 11 months in a selection of French oak barrels. When the wine was ready to be blended, our winemaker Paul Clifton chose the barrels he felt best exemplified the aromas, flavors and structure of the Santa Lucia Highlands." - Winery Notes

Hahn "SLH" Pinot Noir 2012 Tasting Notes

This Pinot Noir offers soft tannins, delicious plum and cherry aromas and flavors, a hint of allspice and an underpinning of the earth itself. Without a doubt, its defining feature is its irresistibly silky, velvety texture.
