2020 Hahn Merlot
90 pts, Best Buy - Wine Enthusiast, November 2022
“This well-concentrated, moderately tannic wine has a solid core of black fruits wrapped in a firm texture. With good, grippy mouthfeel, it can pair well with juicy meat and pasta dishes.” - J.G.
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 Ste. Philippe present ideal conditions for growing Merlot. The soil color, structure and high winds 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.
