Last week, at the annual Republic-National Distributing Company of Kentucky trade show in Louisville, the girls and I got to taste some pretty great new releases from all over the world. Yet one of my good friends in the business, John Erickson of Hahn Family Wines (formerly Wimbledon Wines) showed off some of, in my opinion, the best-in-show.

One in particular was the Hahn SLH Pinot Noir 2006 ($25ish), a new mid-tier release that is 100% Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. It is a multi-layered, voluptuous Pinot Noir with juicy red berry aromas and flavors, and just the right presence of oak aging (50% new French) to give the fruit a mocha/cinnamon quality that gives this medium-bodied red another wonderful dimension.

Plush tannins glide across the palate and the acidity is well-balanced, lending an excellent accoutrement to any style of cuisine. Look for this wine in our stores very soon.

Hahn SLH Pinot Noir is a perfect wine actually that's what the girls love, until the most elegant women get so drunk with this beverage.m10m
