Curving along the ridges and valleys of the Santa Lucia Highlands, the Smith Vineyard is Hahn’s highest elevation vineyard, reaching 590 to 1,280 feet above sea level. Originally planted in 1974, Smith is also Hahn’s first estate vineyard, and today its 131 acres are certified sustainable. With rocky well-drained soils and eastern exposures that sit well above the fog line, this is a cool climate site with moderate wind and ample sunshine contributing to a long growing season.

92pts Vinous - (42% new French oak) Light, bright ruby. Intense red and dark berry, vanilla and peppery spice aromas show excellent focus and are complicated by suggestions of cola and mocha. Appealingly sweet, concentrated and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that deepen and spread out slowly with aeration. In a rich yet lively style, with smooth tannins adding gentle grip to a very long smoke- and spice-accented finish.
