The wind and fog interact with solar radiation to slow grapes' ripening, producing up to two months longer growing season than in warmer grape growing regions. These conditions create fruit with more varietal intensity, flavor, depth and structure, and thus, exceptional wines. In German, "Hahn" means "Rooster" and for this reason a rooster embellishes the Hahn Estates label, honoring the Hahn Family’s European Heritage. With an inspiration to raise Monterey wines to the highest level, the wines of Hahn Estates are created with a philosophy that all great wines are special – akin to the region they were grown in. The Hahn wines celebrate everything that is Monterey – unique in thought, style and setting. View all Hahn Estates Wines
Hahn Estates Meritage Red Blend 2009
Bordeaux Red Blends from Central Coast, California
Dark and seductive in the glass, this classic Bordeaux-style blend manages to be approachable yet complex. Pronounced blackberry and blueberry on the nose mingle with cedar spice and a hint of wood, while notes of bramble fruit, cherry, vanilla and dried herbs please the palate. This wine consists primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon, with generous portions of Malbec and Petite Verdot to add depth to the tannic profile and color, and to enhance richness mid-palate. Cabernet Franc and Merlot also are in the blend.
The multidimensional character of this blend is well-suited for rich and robust foods. Try it with rosemary lamb chops with Swiss chard or pizza with Italian sausage. Or serve with a simple appetizer such as fig and blue cheese crostini.
Blend: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 11% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot
