It's Cab Franc!

Hey you either love wines with vegetal components or you don't. For my palate there is some lovely "funk" on this cabernet franc. Surprisingly good. Quite food friendly!  Very bell pepper driven.

I like this wine a lot for the price but just a little bit in general.  Hahn continues to produce value driven wines in my opinion and this one is no exception.  The bell pepper and smoke laced with cherries and dirt really come through over a smoky delivery. Drink now.

Hahn (Smith & Hook) has some prime real estate in the SLH and most of their land was planted to bordeaux varietals. Thanks to 'the movie' these 30+ year old vines were replanted to pinot, making 2005 the last vintage for hahn cab franc. Fellow local winemaker Damien Georis made a great wine out of this last pick called 'Madeline', and it sold out locally in short order. This cab franc is intensely fruit driven, with a slight tobacco nose, made in the modern cali style. The wines made in the early 80s were a tough sell, tight tannin and low alcohol bordeaux blends from monterey didn't really have a market. Now they are very similar to old paulliacs like Latour. Hopefully the pinot they harvest from this plot near soledad can match that potential.
