2019 Hahn Merlot
The grapes for this wine were grown in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County in the specific Ste Philippe vineyards. The sandy soils of the Ste Philippe vineyards present ideal conditions for growing Merlot. The soil color, structure and winds we get down on the valley floor allow the grapes to develop intense red fruit flavors and deep color. We age our Merlot in French oak barrels which enhances mouthfeel and contributes dark chocolate and vanilla flavors.
