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.
Big & Bold
I've had the Hahn Pinot many times but hadn't tried the Meritage until. Another excellent wine from Hahn. Ready to drink, bold, held up well with wild turkey and cranberry sauce. Good wine.
Very good with a nice finish.
Smooth & Supple
This was actually quite a smooth wine, it has some fruity brightness that really balances out the darker, deeper notes. Really enjoyable, nice balance of sweet/dry.
