Winery: Boneshaker is a label of Hahn Winery, which was founded in 1980 by Nicky and Gaby Hahn. Today the over 1000 acre estate in Monterey County is still family owned and operated, with next generation Philip and Caroline Hahn continuing on with their parents pioneering spirit and passion for high quality, hand crafted wines.
Winemaking: The Hahn Winery is committed to sustainability, is “earth friendly from vine to bottle” and have been at the forefront of sustainable practices for many years in California. With methods such as organic pest and mildew control, encouraging biodiversity in the vineyards, soil and water conservation and the social equity of farm workers, Hahn Estates has achieved renowned success with their high quality, economically viable wines. Boneshaker was sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards in Lodi, and fermented in 70% new French oak and 30% neutral barrels.
Tasting notes: Inky red-violet in colour with aromas of chocolate, licorice and toasted oak. Intense black current, cherry and plum flavours wrapped a spicy core, whilst allspice, chocolate and juicy raisin notes comprised the plush finish.
