Lucienne Doctor's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017
Winemaker Notes :
Located in the middle stretch of the Santa Lucia Highlands, the 243-acre Doctor’s Vineyard experiences warmer temperatures and higher winds than Hahn’s other estate vineyards in the region. Certified sustainable, the vineyard ranges from 320 feet to 720 feet above sea level, with gently sloped hillsides and wide row spacing that offers greater sun exposure. The dry and slightly warmer climate here results in a riper more robust Pinot Noir, with layers of cherry and citrus fruits along with brown spice and tones of mushroom and earth. Thewine’s balanced acidity and smooth tannins lead to a round, approachably soft mouthfeel and a lingering finish.
